We appreciate that couples do not enter into a marriage or a long term de facto relationship thinking that it is going to end. Sadly, however, despite best efforts, sometimes life does not go to plan. Relationships within a family may become strained or even irreconcilable and it then may become necessary to seek legal advice.
