What exactly is separation?

The choice of one partner in a relationship to end the relationship and then convey that decision to the other party. For a Divorce to be granted, the marriage must have irretrievably broken down and the parties must have been separated for at least 12 months immediately previous to filing the Divorce Application.

What Exactly Is a De Facto Relationship?

A real domestic partnership with another partner for at least two years is classified as a de facto relationship. The Family Court Act provides legal rights to persons in de facto partnerships, including child custody issues and property settlements.

How do you handle Property Settlement issues?

Direct discussion, mediation, or other informal techniques can be used to establish an agreement on the reasonable and equitable allocation of property acquired during your marriage or de facto partnership.

If you are unable to address your Property Settlement concerns via mediation and negotiation, the Court will divide the property after hearing evidence.

The following issues will be pertinent:

  • What are each party’s assets, obligations, and financial resources?
  • What contributions did each partner make to the property in terms of direct and indirect financial and non-financial contributions, as well as contributions to the family’s welfare?
  • What are the parties’ future demands, taking into consideration a variety of factors?

Property settlement talks can be problematic in a variety of ways.

We can help you with your Property Settlement concerns and advise you on the important variables in your family law dispute.
