How to get separated in Australia

The separation process begins with a decision. A decision that is made either by one partner, or both, to end the relationship and begin the process of separation.Once that decision has been made, it has to be communicated to the other party. There are many ways to go about this, however, it is crucial that you communicate the date of separation not just verbally, but by writing it down as well. Some ways you can communicate this is through email, text message, or via social media.

Of course, you will need to have a difficult conversation in person in order to begin the process, but keeping a record of when the intent to separate first occurred will assist you later on.

While beginning the initial process of separation can be done without needing to go to court or seeking advice from a family law specialist, it is recommended that you attain some basic guidance from a separation lawyer, so you can ensure that various aspects of the relationship are dealt with and that you can move on and have peace of mind.
