Understanding Divorce in Queensland

Under Queensland law, a divorce can only be granted when the couple has been separated for 12 months, demonstrating an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. This applies even if you are living under the same roof, provided you can demonstrate you are living separate lives. Navigating these requirements smoothly necessitates legal advice, ensuring your application is straightforward and compliant

I walked into Claire’s office a broken woman, facing separation and property settlement post-DV. I had lost hope of ever being financially back on track. But with her help I am about to by my first home for me and my 3 children. Eternally grateful. She handled all the complicated stuff and I trusted her with making the right decisions for me. 5 stars. Claire has turned my life around.
