Ultimately, the benefits to separation include both parties having a more harmonious relationship with each other, or both parties becoming satisfied with no longer having any obligation to keep any relationship with each other.

Separation is defined as valid once you and/or your partner decide to end your marital relationship and stop living together as a couple.

This is initiated by verbalising that one party no longer has any desire to be together with their current partner. It does not matter if you or your partner disagree with the decision, so long as one party has no desire to continue living together as a couple, you will be considered to be separated.

When separating, one party may decide to move out of their shared property, however, you can still be considered separated whilst living in the same property. This is referred to as “separation under one roof.” Here are some factors that serve to validate separation:

  • Both parties no longer sleep in the same bed or room.
  • Both parties no longer consummate their marriage through sexual activity.
  • Both parties no longer share meals together or help each other with domestic chores.
  • Both parties no longer share finances or have access to a shared bank account.
  • Both parties’ friends and family no longer recognise the marital relationship.

Hoe Lawyers can assist you through the process should there be any legal actions necessary for the separation to take place. Do note, however, that there is no legal requirement for separation.

Financial Settlements

Financial papers

With Hoe Lawyers, we can help empower your decision-making and come to a resolution that is in your best interest. Making the right decisions regarding financial settlements sets you up for a brighter future.

When a couple separates, it often means that their finances are divided accordingly, covering all assets and debts. Here are a few ways to go about financial settlements:

  • You and your former spouse or partner can discuss and come to an amicable agreement on how your shared properties are going to be divided amongst yourselves. This is possible without any legal assistance or court involvement.
  • You and your former partner can also agree on having specific arrangements, which can be formalised through the application of Consent Orders in the Family Court.
  • You and your former partner or spouse can also make an application for Financial Orders to a court should there be any disagreement regarding an arrangement. This can result in orders that define the division of properties and required financial support.

Hoe Lawyers can guide you through the entire ordeal, should there be any impediments to the division of property and payments for support upon separation.

Childcare Arrangements


When handled masterfully, parents going through a separation can still provide their children with the same opportunities as other children from complete families. Here are some examples of fruitful childcare arrangements:

  • The children continue to receive the same (if not greater) love and support from both parents and the rest of the family.You and your former partner can also agree on having specific arrangements, which can be formalised through the application of Consent Orders in the Family Court.
  • Both parents remain committed to providing their children with unconditional love and support, sharing the responsibility of taking care and raising their children.
  • The children are provided a home that is safe, secure, and nurturing, regardless of their living with both parents. This means that there should be no signs or symptoms of violence or abuse in the children’s home or environment.

For most children, if not all, the separation of their parents is never going to be desirable. It is natural for a child to want a complete, happy, and healthy family in which their parents are still together and living under the same roof. Therefore, when going through a separation, it is crucial that both parents ensure their child’s (or children’s) emotional well-being is kept intact.

Whilst going through a wide spectrum of emotions yourself, it is vital that you take time to understand how your child is seeing and interpreting the situation.

Divorce and Separation are never easy, but you will manage.

Is a divorce necessary?

The Family Law Act 1975 establishes that in Australian Law, the principle of no-fault divorce applies. This means that individuals are allowed to divorce their spouses without having to blame their partner for the breakdown of the relationship. Upon the granting of a divorce, the Federal Circuit Court of Australia fully recognises that the marriage has fallen apart and is now considered null and void, and that both parties are never getting back together. The court no longer looks at the “why it happened?” but instead, it focuses on the “has it really ended?”
Hoe Lawyers can help walk you through the entire process of divorce and give you advice on how to proceed, which includes helping you flesh out all the details of why getting a divorce is a necessary step to moving forward.

I don’t need a divorce lawyer to help me understand the law.

Perth Divorce and Separation lawyers know the process behind divorce applications in Australia.
A divorce attorney can make the entire journey easier for you. Obtain the legal advice that you need, so you can better understand your rights and responsibilities prior to your divorce application.
Here are the requirements to apply for a divorce:
• If either you or your spouse live in Australia and see it as your home.
• If either you or your spouse is an Australian citizen.
• If either you or your spouse live in Australia for at least a year prior to filing for a divorce.
• That your marriage is legally recognised in Australia.• That the marriage is irretrievably broken, that is to say you need to prove to the Court that you and your spouse have been separated for 12 months, and there is no reasonable prospects of reconciliation happening.
