Our approachable team have over 25 years experience in handling all aspects of the division of marital or defacto property.
Many of the common questions fall into the categories of:
How to value the assets of the marriage, how to split the major assets ( being the family home and superannuation or family businesses) , how will the children be provided for by way of child support, and can I obtain spousal support from the other party.
Like childrens matters, the Family Court requires parties to attempt to resolve their dispute first through dispute resolution. We can guide you through the process of asset valuations, dispute resolution and attend with you if appropriate mediation, which is a very effective method of resolving the property settlement dispute.
If dispute resolution is not appropriate in circumstances such as domestic violence or urgency (eg attempt by other party to dispose of an asset), then we can help you file an Application in the Court. There is a time limit for the filing of an application by a spouse or defacto, namely 12 months from the divorce or date of separation.
