Divorce and separation is not only emotionally difficult, it can also be financially difficult.
Broad principles apply to the division of property but each case is determined on its own individual facts. The court has a wide range of discretion when making a decision.
Financial and Property Settlement
When determining a property settlement, the court may make such orders “as it considers appropriate to change the interests of the parties in property”.
The preferred way to finalise financial and property issues between parties is to negotiate and attempt to reach an agreement without any court involvement. Hayes Gabriel Lawyers can work with you through this process.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
If you and your former partner cannot resolve the property issues between you, we can assist by guiding you through alternative dispute resolution options including mediation, arbitration and collaborative practice.
Dispute resolution relies on both parties compromising and co-operating, sometimes court intervention is necessary.
If an agreement is reached between the parties, we suggest that you make this settlement binding and enforceable by way of filing consent orders in court.
