Financial and Property Issues and Disputes

When going through a relationship breakdown, separation or divorce there can be property and financial issues to consider. The dividing and splitting of assets during this emotional time can often cause disputes, which may delay the settlement process. We also understand that no case is ever the same and that the division of assets and income can often be complex.

We can assist in negotiating a settlement and formalising the agreement by preparing either a separation agreement or a binding consent order. Failing this, we can assist in financial settlement proceedings at Court.

Separating couples who are facing financial disagreements may want to consider mediation (a forum for constructive discussion between the parties with an independent third party present) or collaborative law (a four way meeting with you, your ex partner and your respective lawyers). Either through mediation or a collaborative process, financial arrangements can often be dealt with amicably through negotiations between solicitors.



What should I consider next?

Whether you and your ex-partner can reach an agreement or not, you may want to consider these fundamental concepts:
  • Full financial disclosure from both parties. Prior to dividing any family finances, it must be determined what exactly needs to be divided in terms of income and capital.

  • Any financial settlement should be formalised in a court order. Once formalised, the parties are bound by the settlement and if there is any default that the settlement can be enforced.

  • If an agreement is reached between both parties once court proceedings have started, a court order will still be necessary. The court always retains the power to approve an order or not.
