Family Lawyers for Property & Financial Settlements
Property settlement covers much more than the family home. There are often bank accounts, superannuation, cars and other assets to consider. There’s also liabilities including home and personal loans, credit and store cards. Assets and liabilities need to be divided and the settlement legally documented.
The financial and non-financial contributions of both parties to the relationship are considered during the property settlement process. The future earning capacity and care of any children is also taken into account in deciding the outcome.
We’re experienced family lawyers in negotiating with the other party to achieve a property settlement without court action, if that’s in your best interest.
Settling on Complex Finances
Everyone has a different financial situation. Yours may be complex with a mix of businesses, companies, partnerships, family and unit trusts, self-managed superannuation funds, investment properties, shares, and overseas assets.
You may have set up and managed the assets so you have a good understanding of them or your partner did so your knowledge is limited. Whatever your situation, we can help.
Complex financial situations should be handled by an experienced family lawyer to ensure you receive the right advice. We regularly work with clients’ accountants and financial planners to ensure the best outcome.
