Emotions are often heightened when dealing with divorce cases, and it’s not always a smooth process for couples going through it. DPP Law is well equipped to handle the complex matters divorce cases bring, along with experts who specialise in a wide variety of cases with different grounds for divorce. However, remember that you have to have been legally married for at least 12 months before you apply for a divorce, and there are no exceptions to this rule.
Cohabitation agreements are becoming more and more common as people opt to spend their money on other things than marriage. But due to so much being on the line, it’s important to have an agreement drawn up so that a couple can cohabit fairly and have the same protections as marriage. DPP Law will support you through this process and will treat every unique case with sensitivity and understanding. so you know you’ll be in the safest of hands. We can even organise a free consultation for you to attend that will provide a bit of clarity regarding your case.

Family Law: Frequently Asked Questions
Is meditation compulsory in family law?
Mediation is not compulsory in family law, and many of the advantages of mediation are due to its voluntary nature. However, if you would like to skip the mediation procedures, you will have to attend a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting. If you have safety concerns regarding the MIAM though, you can be deemed exempt and move straight into the Court.
What constitutes contempt of court in family law?
Contempt of Court is a serious offence and can result in a custodial sentence, regardless of whether it’s committed in a family law instance or otherwise. Any activity seen to interfere with the administration of justice will result in an investigation into whether contempt of Court has occurred. This includes breaching a court order, showing disrespect in the Court or providing information outside of the Court that can prejudice the trial.
