WITH divorces rising, a law expert has revealed how to break up the ‘smart way’.
According to new data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), there has been an increase in divorces in Australia
The data, which was published on November 10, revealed that 56,244 divorces were granted in 2021, compared to 49,510 in 2020 and 48,582 in 2019.
This 13.6% year-on-year increase in divorces was partly due to a speeding-up of processing times, the ABS said. But it also reflects the fact that a lot of marriages, and de facto relationships, eventually come to an end – and often painfully.
As a result, family law experts at One Law are holding a one-day seminar to help people dealing with the challenge of separation or divorce.
This seminar will educate people about how to manage emotions, assets and children during what can be a very stressful time.
It will also explain the legal processes you need to follow and the documentation you need to collect.
One Law director James Saba said it was vital for people to educate themselves about divorce and separation, because decisions that were made during a break-up could have significant long-term consequences.
“If you make the wrong moves around custody arrangements or dividing your assets, you might regret your decision for years to come,” he said.
“Also, if you tackle the divorce or separation process with the wrong mindset, you might find it harder to achieve closure and move on with your life.
“During the seminar, you’ll learn about all the practical and legal issues you need to navigate during a divorce or separation, so you’ll have all the information you need to make smart decisions.”
The event will be held on November 22 at Novotel Parramatta. The event is free, but spots are limited, so reserve your seats now.
