Family Law

We all know the line, “For better or worse, rich or poorer, in sickness and in health”. But as we also know, as in all aspects of life, things don’t always go to plan.Relationships break down, people move on and we’re left with the daunting task of settling the accumulative assets of a life past.

Our Legal team at the Hrkac Group understand that this is a stressful time, where you will need guidance and understanding. We can guide you through the preparation of your Divorce application as well as represent you in court to finalise your Divorce.

When it comes to the division of assets, we can help you there too. Whether you’re legally married or in a De Facto relationship, once your relationship beaks down, your joint assets will need to be settled.

In an ideal world, reaching an amicable agreement between you and your former partner would help you avoid the need for a lengthy, costly and stressful legal process. But even if you have reached an agreement you need to have that agreement legally recognised by way of Binding Financial Agreement or Consent Orders.

Obviously if an agreement can’t be reached, then obtaining legal advice to ensure you receive the best possible outcome is paramount. Either way our experienced Legal team are ready to help you with your Property & Family Law needs and will be able to guide you every step of the way.

Even if you have experience with deceased estates, a death in the family is never an easy thing to cope with, no matter the circumstance. When a loved one passes away, though we may not want to think about it, there will come a time when their assets and liabilities will need to be settled.

The Geelong-based Legal team at the Hrkac Group understands that this is a difficult time for the family, and can assist you in getting your loved ones’ Estate matters resolved as smoothly as possible, so that you can all move forward with your lives. We are experts in dealing with deceased estates and probate.

We will assist you with obtaining Probate (where a valid Will is in place) or Letters of Administration (where no Will was in place), as well as finalising the estate to ensure all beneficiaries their entitlements in a timely manner.

Likewise, if you have been left out of a will or received less than what is fair, we can assist you in obtaining you fair share.

With help from our Legal Services team at the Hrkac Group, Executors can carry out their loved ones’ wishes as painlessly as possible.

We can help you with making a will in Geelong. We live in a fast-paced world and it’s only getting faster. With our time being increasingly filled with work and family, the last thing we want to think about is making a Will. This is where the Geelong Legal team at the Hrkac Group can help.

A will is a legal document that sets out your wishes for what you would like to have happen to your estate when you are no longer here, which takes effect after your passing. On the other hand, a power of attorney is a legal document that authorises the person you nominate to make decisions on your behalf and takes effect during your lifetime.

Whether you feel that you need to create a Will or not, the reality is that in the event of your passing, a Will provides your loved ones with the legal protection they need to ensure that your wishes are complied with.

The Geelong-based team at the Hrkac Group can guide you through the process of making a Will, answering any questions you may have along the way and giving you the confidence that you will be leaving your family secure.

We can also assist you with granting a Power of Attorney for someone to act on your behalf should you be unable to yourself. A Power of Attorney gives someone the authority to make decisions and execute documentation on your behalf, whilst you are not in a position to do so for yourself, due to mental illness, physical disability, or simply because you are not currently available. There are various forms of Power of Attorney such as:

  • Enduring Power of Attorney – Financial and Personal
  • Medical Power of Attorney

Our Geelong-based legal team can assist you to make the right decisions when making a Will and putting Powers of Attorney in place so that you can get on with living your life to the fullest.

Trustworthy commercial leasing advice

Opening a new shopfront? Moving your offices to a new space? Relocating to a larger warehouse? It’s an exciting and somewhat stressful time taking out a new retail or commercial lease. Before you begin the whirlwind of fit-out, packing, and relocating, you need to ensure that there are no nasty surprises lurking within the terms of your new lease. Our Legal team at the Hrkac Group can help with beneficial commercial leasing advice.

A commercial lease is a legally binding agreement between a landlord and a business tenant for the rental of property. Compared to a residential lease, commercial leases are more complicated as the lease terms can vary significantly from lease to lease and may also vary according to whether the lease is for commercial premises or retail premises. Before signing a commercial lease, both parties need to understand the terms and ensure they can meet all the terms and conditions.

There are various forms of lease agreement and with that, varying types of legislation. We can help you make sense of it all and guide you through the terms of your agreement to help you make the right decision for your business.

Commercial leases need to be structured strictly in accordance with law. Take expert commercial lease legal advice from our team of commercial leasing professionals at The Hrkac Group. You need to know where you stand right from the start and HG Legal Services can assist you every step of the way.
