Do you know how to protect your hard-earned assets should you have to divide them in a Court settlement?
Money and its distribution is one of the most contentious issues that clients can face post separation.
The process for a settlement in the Family Court or Federal Circuit Court can be a costly and lengthy process.
We have helped hundreds of clients obtain a settlement through negotiation and the transition to Court if parties cannot agree in Mediation. These written orders are known as Consent Orders and are enforceable by the court.
If you and your de facto partner or spouse are splitting assets there are numerous things the Court will consider but not limited to:
- Earning Capacity (present and future)
- Domestic/ child rearing duties
- Improvements (eg renovation)
- Consideration of a just and equitable outcome
