When parties separate it can be a very stressful time for everyone involved. It’s very important that parties remain child focused, as the child is the primary focus for the Courts. The Courts main concern is what is in a child’s best interest.

After parents have separated, they need to make decisions about the future needs of their children. Decisions need to be made as to who a child shall live with and what time the child is to spend with the other parent and whether a shared care arrangement is more suitable. Whatever the decisions may be, a regime needs to be put in place, that takes into account what is in your child’s best interest.

Parents also need to decide how they are to divide their matrimonial property after separation. Deciding these issues can be a very stressful and emotional time and it can be most challenging for all parties involved.

Prior to filing an application with the Court, you are required to comply with the Court’s pre-application procedures and attend mediation to try and reach a resolution. There are many benefits to mediation, as you can speak freely and confidentially to the other party regarding your feelings and concerns, it is an informal process and it allows parents to come to an agreement that is best suitable for all concerned. You know your children best and you also know what situation would best you. Mediation eliminates the involvement of the Courts, it reduces stress and legal costs for all involved. Mediation is not required if there has been any abuse or violence, or if your matter is urgent.

Probate is a document from the Supreme Court authenticating the Will. It is an important document as it enables your Executor to administer your Will in accordance with your wishes.

Probate is not always a requirement, however banking institutions, insurance companies and superannuation funds usually do require a copy of a Grant of Probate, this enables them to transfer the assets to the Beneficiaries and to release funds held in the deceased accounts. Institutions will sometimes release modest amounts of money without the need for Probate being obtained or to pay for funeral expenses, this is usually when an invoice is provided to them. Real estate held solely in the name of the deceased person, will always require a Grant of Probate in order to be deal with, as it is a requirement of the Department of Land and Property Information. The property can be transferred into the name of the Executor pending the sale of the property or if the Beneficiaries intend to retain the property, it can be transferred into the Beneficiaries names.

An APVO is made when people are not involved in a domestic relationship, for example when people are neighbours, friends or work colleagues.

  • a warrant (written authority) for your arrest has been issued by a court, or
  • you have committed or are about to commit an offence.

A police officer may use as much force as necessary to arrest you. Unreasonable force however is assault. After an arrest, a police officer may handcuff you if you attempt to escape or the officer considers it necessary to prevent you from escaping.

It is an offence to resist arrest, even if, you believe that you are completely innocent of committing any offence. If you resist an arrest, you are committing an offence and you may be charged, even if the police do not charge you with any other offences.

We can assist you in the following:

  • Advice on Leases

Contact us for legal advice, we can check the Lease thoroughly to make sure you fully understand what it all means, what you are committing yourself to and that the Lease is reasonable. Lease agreements can have a variety of terms and conditions and they can be very complex. If you’re unhappy with anything in the Lease, we can make sure that any changes are written into the Lease before you sign it or before you take possession of the shop. Once you’re committed to it, the Lease will be very difficult to cancel. The Lease sets out what sort of business you can run in the premises, which is called “permitted use”. Once approved, you can’t run any other type of business without the landlord and Council’s consent. You will need to pay for the registration of the Lease and the landlord must pay for the Lease preparation costs.

It is very important that you understand the Lease and its terms and that you ensure that all agreements reached between yourself and the Landlord are contained in the Lease, as you are bound by the Lease, once it has been entered into.
