Property Settlement

Property settlement agreements are intended to finalise the financial relationship of parties to a relationship or a marriage and can cover a wide range of property including:

  • The former matrimonial home;
  • The investment properties and shareholding;
  • Companies, businesses and trusts;
  • Spousal maintenance;
  • Child support;
  • Superannuation.

Who can apply for a property settlement agreement?

Parties who are married can make an application to the court to seek a determination about whether there should be a division of property and in what form.

Property settlement for divorcing couples follows four steps:

  1. Identification and valuation of the couple’s assets, liabilities and financial resources
  2. Assessment of financial and non-financial contributions of the couple
  3. Determination of the future needs of both parties
  4. Evaluation of the decisions taken in the first three steps to know whether they are just and equitable in all circumstances

Note that there is no presumption of a 50:50 property split.

Our family law services Melbourne have helped couples achieve favourable outcomes. This includes instances where couples have resolved the matter on their own as well as when they have had to go to court.

  • Advise you in relation to your rights, including family trusts;
