Issues That Family Lawyers Can Help You Through

Many of us have never been exposed to legal issues of any kind.  This can often be frightening and confronting.  Depending on the kind of situation you are in, you are going to have to engage the services of a lawyer who specialises in that particular area of law.  

One of the most common areas that requires legal representation is family law.  Here at SJP Law, we have a team of expert members who specialise in that area. With that in mind, here are some of the common situations that family lawyers on the Sunshine Coast can help with.

Common Issues Family Lawyers Help With


A family lawyer can help you if you are ready to get a divorce.   There are many time frames and limitations that are difficult to navigate on your own and many requirements that the Court needs to ensure that your divorce proceeds smoothly. 

SJP Law has a team of skilled staff to guide you through all of the specific divorce requirements, with such issues often spilling over into the separate area of dealing with your property settlement.  

Property Settlement & Binding Financial Agreements

A family lawyer is the person to turn to if you need help in trying to determine the best way to split ownership of your assets with your former partner.  These assets can be homes, businesses, superannuation, vehicles and bank accounts, amongst other things.  

People are often unsure as to how this is dealt with and the issues become confusing and overwhelming.  This is a much more complicated and delicate issue than simply transferring properties without seeking legal advice. 

It is important to speak to someone who can give you guidance and how the Court deals with family assets and what the long-term impacts might be on you and your family if these issues are not dealt with through the correct channels.    

People often confuse divorce and property settlement.  These are two very separate issues and each of them has very specific and important time limitations that can significantly impact your financial future if you do not seek legal advice.

Parenting Matters

If you find yourself in a position where you are unable to agree with your children’s other parent as to the best parenting regime for your children, then SJP Law can help.   

Our team at SJP Law Maroochydore can provide support to those people who have not been successful in dealing with their former partner and where the delicate and important issue of the children’s bests interests are concerned. 

Often parents become disheartened and frustrated, and those feelings can adversely impact their children.  We are here to help you navigate through these difficult times.
