Going through family court can be avoided if an agreement can be reached with your ex-partner you can apply to the Family Court for consent orders, where framework for division of assets, care arrangements for children and any other special arrangements can be crafted and applied through the family court upon agreement by both parties.
Avoiding court is important because it would save you a lot of money in legal costs and if it was necessary to transfer the property, your stamp duty would be limited to the nominal fee. Consent orders can include property and children’s issues which can be made by the Court before the dissolution of the marriage.

Restraining Order Lawyers Perth
A Restraining order is a form of legal injunction. In Western Australia you may apply for Violence Restraining Order or Misconduct Violence Order. The term is most commonly used in reference to domestic violence, harassment, stalking or sexual assault.
A restraining order is a legal order issued by a court which requires one person to stop harming another person. Restraining order laws establish who can file for an order, what protection or relief a person can get from such an order, and how the order will be enforced.
The court has the power to order the abuser to stay away from someone, their home, their workplace or their school and to stop contacting them. Victims generally also can ask the court to order that all contact, whether by telephone, notes, mail, fax, email is prohibited.
WA Legal Pty Ltd can help you either apply for a restraining order or defend yourself against a restraining order that has been unreasonably granted and/or adhering to the restraining order would severely impact your daily movements or work capabilities.
