About Family Law Financial and Property Settlement
Property and financial matters can be highly complex and stressful, however property matters can be agreed by consent by means of a Binding Financial Agreement or Consent Orders. Where matters are not agreed they can be contested.
It is important to receive advice to determine what you may be entitled to in a property settlement and what is included in what we call: ‘the asset pool.’ There are number of assets that can be identified to generate an asset pool, which may include real property, shareholdings, companies and superannuation.
We ensure that all property is properly valued and included within a property settlement, even in circumstances when a spouse or partner has attempted to hide assets.
We can act on your behalf to negotiate settlement terms and provide representation in the Family Law Courts if there is no prior agreement. We are also able to draft and provide legal advice with regard to binding financial agreements and consent orders.
