Family Lawyers Sunshine Coast
Omnia Legal understands the complexities and stress associated with the end of a marriage or de facto relationship. We understand separation can be difficult.
Our family law lawyers are dedicated to supporting you through this time and navigating you through the complexities of the family law system. Our trustworthy and experienced team is passionate about keeping you out of court (wherever possible) and finalising arrangements quickly. We work to ensure financial entitlements are maximised, the wellbeing of any children are prioritised and stress is reduced.
Our Sunshine Coast law firm provides strictly confidential advice and assistance to resolve all matters through a collaborative process. It’s important to seek legal help from the very start so you can gain clarity on your rights and entitlements and ensure any important deadlines are met.
Our family solicitors are upfront with costing at the beginning of the process and every decision point throughout, to ensure you feel both confident and comfortable with the exceptional service being delivered.
The property settlement legal process is where an arrangement is made between both parties to divide assets, liabilities and financial resources. At Omnia Legal we are committed to ensuring our clients understand the whole process, and feel educated to make informed decisions.
Our expert law firm team will be by your side the whole time ensuring you get the best outcome possible.
Our property settlement lawyers understand going through the court system can be emotionally taxing, lengthy and costly. At Omnia Legal we do whatever we can to avoid going to court.
In the first instance our family solicitors will always attempt to come to an agreement with you and your spouse without legal intervention. If this is not successful we will propose mediation. A majority of our property settlement clients do not go to court, but if we do have to, our family settlement lawyers are willing and ready.
When determining property settlement matters, the Court will use a four stage process:
- Identify and value the asset pool
- Assess contributions from each party
- Look at other factors that need to be considered
(eg. your age, your children, your income)
- Is the overall division appropriate?
There is a common myth that property will be divided 50/50, when in reality every relationship is different. There is no precise science to reaching a decision, the Court needs to be satisfied the division is ultimately ‘just and equitable’. This is why few people reach trial, and we are often able to come to a mutual property settlement agreement with both parties.
A family breakdown can be extremely difficult for children involved, so at Omnia Legal we consider the emotion and dynamics surrounding the legal parenting arrangements being made. With many members of our family law team being parents themselves, our family law solicitors are empathetic to the needs of children during what can be an extremely tough time.
Our Sunshine Coast law firm always work with the best interests of the children in mind, and aim to ensure they have a meaningful relationship with equal shared parental responsibility of both parents where appropriate, as well as relationships other significant relatives such as grandparents.
However, while it’s important parents should share the load when it comes to responsibilities and decisions concerning the care, welfare and development of their children, this doesn't always mean they necessarily spend equal time with them.
Omnia Legal will work with you to get the best possible legal parenting arrangements set when it comes to the future of your children and their living standards. Everything our family lawyers do is documented and legally binding to give you confidence moving forward.
Our family lawyers provide our clients with a wealth of information about parenting matters in an easy to understand way and have a high success rate for handling these situations in mediation.
