The court has a set of rules it follows to determine property matters in a separation.
Factors such as: deciding what property can be divided, the financial contribution of each party to acquire, maintain, conserve or improve relationship property, and the capacity of each party to financially support themselves and any children in their care into the future, will impact how the assets will be divided. The court will also consider non-financial contributions made by either party such as the support and contribution to the welfare of the family.
Property matters often require technical knowledge, especially where valuation, inheritance, trusts, or self managed superannuation is involved. A familiarity with the law, resilience, and knowledge of how to maximise your entitlement in a just and fair manner are all essential in a family lawyer.
