Distilling the relevant facts of your relationship. We do this through discussion with you, taking your detailed account as well as making sure that we understand what are your goals and priorities.
Overview of Property Settlement
You should be aware that even where you negotiate an agreement with your former partner, the Family Law Act 1975 applies in determining entitlements for the division of property for both married couples as well as for de facto (including same sex) couples who separate after 1 March 2009. It is also important to realise that divorce does not finalise property (or parenting) issues which must be addressed separately.
