Finding a way through the darkness

When I found out my husband had been cheating on me, I felt like the ground had opened up beneath my feet. Suddenly it felt like anything I had believed in was unsure. After some reflection I realised that I had been blind about how badly our marriage had been going, and I can't live in that lie anymore. The only way through the darkness is to leave the lies and cheating behind and start over in my life, committed to honesty in all my relationships. This blog is all about my journey through separation and divorce into my new honest life.

Critical Roles of a Family Lawyer in Declaration of Nullity Cases

According to Australian laws, a couple separated for at least 12 months can apply for divorce through a family court or the Federal Circuit Court for Divorce. However, in some instances, separated couples choose to apply for a declaration of nullity, not divorce. A statement of nullity refers to a finding by a family court that the marriage between two people is null and void and therefore illegal. When applying for nullity, one must seek the services of a family lawyer primarily because it is not as straightforward as a divorce process.
