Rest assured our family lawyers in Perth, WA understand the emotional, legal and financial complexities of family and child matters. We cover a broad range of family law and relationship law procedures, including:

Binding Financial Agreement

We deal with questions like how their estate would be distributed, whether directly or indirectly through a testamentary trust, who would be appointed as Guardians to look after their children, and who their Executors and Trustees would be to carry out their testamentary wishes. We draft Last Will & Testaments for individuals and ensure that their testamentary wishes are accurately reflected in their Wills.

Consent Orders

In the event that a deceased person did not leave a Will, or the Will is invalid, we assist individuals in applying to the Supreme Court to obtain Letters of Administration to appoint an Administrator to distribute the deceased’s estate according to law. We assist individuals in obtaining a grant of Probate by preparing motions and affidavits to be filed with the deceased person’s Will at the Supreme Court to enable their Executors to deal with their estate and administer it according to their Wills.

Financial & Parenting Orders

An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document that operates during your lifetime to enable a third party to make any and all decisions on your behalf and in your best interests if and when you are legally incapacitated. Such decisions often include financial ones such as the management and use of your assets during your lifetime. An Enduring Power of Guardianship is similar to an Enduring Power of Attorney under which a third party, usually a trusted family member, would act as your legal guardian who would be empowered to make decisions regarding your health and lifestyle only.

Divorce and Separation

Contemplating and going through a Divorce and Separation can be a complicated and difficult time. However, it is a necessary step should a couple decide that their marriage is truly irreconcilable. From shock to denial, anger, blaming other people, immense sadness, grief and depression – there is a whole spectrum of emotions that one goes through. As family lawyers in Perth, Hoe Lawyers understands that for one to fully regain the mental and emotional capacity to move forward, divorce and separation is a critical step in finalising things and officially marking the starting point for healing.

Why Seek Guidance and Support from a Family Lawyer

If you’re facing a family law issue, such as divorce or division of assets, you may wonder if the legal assistance of a family lawyer is worth it. After all, the Internet is a large repository of legal material and resources, specifically practices, procedures and legislation surrounding family law.

Despite the availability and abundance of legal information on the web, finding and working with an experienced family lawyer is still a better option. Here’s why:

Lawyers Make Family Law Less Complex

Some concepts surrounding family law may be complicated for an average person to understand. If you’re facing divorce, for instance, you’ll need to understand the complex terminologies and look at your issue from both a legal and personal perspective.

Approaching knowledgeable family lawyers in Perth, WA helps ease this burden. Your lawyer will take the time to explain everything using clear and simple words. Your lawyer will also suggest the best course of action based on your current situation.

Lawyers Inform You of Your Rights

When faced with family law matters, such as divorce or child custody, your goal should be to obtain the best possible outcome. Taking on these issues without a lawyer is not a good idea. The lack of legal advice raises your risk of making uninformed and rash (or emotional) decisions that prevent you from getting the results you want.

With the expertise of family law layers in Perth, you’ll know your legal rights. Having this knowledge prevents outcomes or situations where the other party is clearly and unfairly infringing your rights.

Lawyers Make Agreements Legally Binding

You’ll need a legally binding agreement if you’re tackling important issues, such as division of assets and child custody. This legal document reduces the likelihood of disputes and keeps both parties on the same page. A family lawyer assists in the creation of a legally binding agreement between you and the other party.

Lawyers Help You Save Money

Yes, you will have to pay your lawyer, but you may end up paying more without a knowledgeable family law attorney on your side. If you are entitled to receive alimony or child support, your lawyer will ensure you receive what you deserve.

Lawyers Speed Up the Process

Family law solicitors in Perth, Western Australia have the knowledge and experience, access to several resources and familiarity with Court policies and procedures that allow them to do things efficiently. You will no longer need to set aside time to work on your case, keep track of deadlines, present requested files and follow up with correspondences from the other party and the Court. Your family law attorney will do all these and more for you.

Lawyers Provide Emotional Support

Tensions may run high when you’re tackling sensitive family issues, such as property settlement and divorce. If you’re emotionally overwhelmed, the stress may affect your thinking and decision making.

An experienced family lawyer provides a moral and emotional boost during difficult times and helps you think clearly and rationally.

Unless you’re a lawyer, too, don’t take on family law issues by yourself. Your inexperience and lack of expertise could cost you a positive outcome. Schedule a free consultation with our law firm today by emailing legaladvice@hoelawyers.com.au or giving us a call on 08 6244 5234.
