Property Settlement is the division of property owned and acquired during a marriage or a de facto relationship.

The same general principles apply regardless of whether you were married or in a de facto relationship.

You can reach agreement as to the just and equitable division of property accumulated during your marriage or de facto relationship by direct negotiation or by mediation or other informal means.

If you cannot resolve your Property Settlement issues by negotiation, then the Court will determine the division of property after hearing evidence.

The following questions will be relevant:

  • What are the assets, liabilities and financial resources of each of the parties?
  • What contributions did each party make to the property, in terms of direct and indirect financial and non-financial contribution, and contribution to the welfare of the family?
  • What are the future needs of the parties taking into account a series of factors?

Property Settlement negotiations can be complex and complicated in any number of ways. We can assist you with your Property Settlement issues and provide you with advice as to the relevant factors in your family law case.
