Taking a Look at the Role of Divorce Lawyers

Divorce lawyers in Melbourne perform an important role in helping couples to navigate the divorce process as well as ensuring all arrangements and obligations are being met by one or both parties after the divorce. This blog post will take a look at some of the other tasks and duties involved in the role of divorce lawyers.

Executing Important Paperwork

One of the primary roles of divorce and separation lawyers in Melbourne is to help couples initiate the divorce process by executing the necessary paperwork to begin the separation. Divorce lawyers will also take care of any legal contracts during and after the process that pertain to matters such as spousal maintenance or other agreed-upon obligations following the divorce.

Representing Their Client in Court

One of the main roles divorce lawyers in Melbourne are tasked with is representing their client by appearing in court for hearings and trials and arguing the client’s case to achieve their desired outcome. It’s important for divorce lawyers to align their strategy and tactics with their client’s desires and personal preferences.

Negotiating Property Settlements & Child Custody

Negotiating a property settlement is another task a family lawyer typically does. This can include negotiating with the other party’s lawyer to try to reach an agreement on the terms of the divorce, such as child custody, child support, spousal maintenance and division of property. However, child custody lawyers may be called upon in more complex family circumstances.
