Jim, Stephanie and Jeremy Maspero: Divorce Lawyers

Your legal dream team are here and ready! At Maspero Legal, you will be dealing directly with a Family Law Solicitor from start to end – we go a step further than just doing the legal work for you.

The outcome of a divorce or separation changes the course of your life & Maspero Legal are equipped to handle every stage of your matter. To apply for a divorce, you need a certificate issued by the court which is usually granted after 12 months of continuous separation. A Court isn’t interested in the reason why you divorced (no-fault divorce) and you can be granted the certificate even if you are still living your ex-partner. However, you need to satisfy the Court that you are separated. This is known as the living under the same roof principle.

In Australia, the Federal Circuit Court and Family Courts both hear and grant divorce, separation and spousal maintenance cases. With complex laws changing constantly, these Courts are a stressful place to be in and it is important to have an experienced Family Law Lawyer who is able to navigate through your matter with you.

We regularly use negotiation and mediation to resolve divorce and separation matters as they are mutually beneficial settlement methods. With many different styles of negotiation and mediation such as round-table or shuttle, these methods of resolving family law disputes are less stressful and emotional than that of going to Court. These methods are cheaper and faster to.

Maspero Legal bring many years experience to solving complex family law disputes, via consent order and property settlement methods, which are again a cost-effective and easier way of resolving your matter.

Spousal Maintenance

If you are separated or divorced from a partner who has been supporting you during the relationship, you may be entitled to apply to have that financial support continued by way of spousal maintenance. Applied for through the Family Court, spousal maintenance is where payments are made by one partner to a former partner. These payments can be made periodically or in lump sum format and are usually granted for a set period (therefore, not forever). Whilst there is no set formula in determining amounts, a Court will look at a range of factors in determining what amount should be awarded, the frequency and for how long.

It was quite a simple process when setting up our will and enduring power of attorney with Jeremy. He came to our home at a convenient time, had documents drafted for our review and answered all of our questions. The experience was a lot easier than having to complete this via email, or visiting the solicitor in their offices.
