Family Lawyers for Property & Financial Settlements
Under the Family Law Act, property settlement covers much more than the family home. There are often bank accounts, superannuation, cars and other assets to consider. There are 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 Family Law property settlement process. The future earning capacity and care of any children is also taken into account in deciding the outcome.
Our Melbourne family lawyers are highly experienced in negotiating with the other party to achieve a fair property settlement without court action if that’s in your best interest.
