At Donnie Harris Law we have a team who want to help you during one of the most difficult periods of your life. We endeavour to work with you during this difficult time to deliver a family law service which is dedicated, trusted, effective and affordable.
We can assist you with a wide range of family law matters including:
- children’s issues
- property settlements
- spouse maintenance
- defacto relationships
- binding financial agreements
- mediations and settlement conferences
- family violence
In particular we have the business law and family law experience to provide high level and technical advice to business owners who may be experiencing a relationship breakdown. We appreciate the value of your business to you and we strive to achieve outcomes that minimise the impact of family law issues on your business.
We work with other highly regarded professionals such as accountants, financial advisors and valuation experts to ensure that you are getting the best advice possible.
We also appreciate that in most instances the best outcome for you will be achieved by avoiding litigation. We encourage our clients to participate in alternative dispute resolution to achieve cost effective and early resolution of disputes.
We offer a fixed fee initial consultation with a Townsville Family Lawyer so that we may discuss your circumstances and gain a better understanding of the family law services that you require.
Separation arises where there is no reasonable prospect of the parties reconciling. Separation can arise even when parties are living under the one roof although it may be more difficult to prove.
To apply for divorce, you have to be separated from your former partner for at least 12 months. Attempts to reconcile during the 12 month period may either extend the period, or cause it to recommence, depending on the number of times the parties have endeavoured to reconcile.
We recommend that you consult a family lawyer about your circumstances and if possible, before separation occurs. This way you are making decisions fully informed and are less likely to make mistakes.
