Property & Financial Matters (Married & De Facto)

Contact Us

Separating finances following separation can be complicated. We will help you understand the process and plan your financial future.

Our family lawyers have expertise in providing fulsome advice whether you have complex financial arrangements involving corporate entities and family trusts with associated taxation issues, or your financial affairs are more straightforward. Financial settlements can also include formalising child support, spousal maintenance and the division of superannuation.
 
Whilst de facto couples have the same legal status to a financial settlement following separation as married couples, it is not always clear when a de facto relationship exists and whether a de facto spouse is permitted to seek a financial settlement.

We can assist you with any query or advice you require relating to:

  • negotiating financial settlements and drafting Financial Agreements and/or Court Orders to properly formalise settlement terms;
  • preparing for and appearing at financial Mediations;
  • disputes regarding the existence of a de facto relationship;
  • claims by third parties such as parents or Family Trusts, including intervening as a third party in court proceedings;
  • urgent restrains and injunctions to prevent the dissipation of property; and
  • all matters relating to court proceedings in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia should that become necessary.
