Family Law

Property Division

Assistance with dividing property and superannuation at the conclusion of a relationship.

We take steps to understand your unique family dynamics and the importance of resolving all aspects of the division of your property.

Property that can be divided between parties to a relationship breakdown can include real property, motor vehicles, companies, businesses, shares, cash savings, trusts, inheritances and household chattels.

Superannuation is also treated as property under the Family Law Act.

When parties separate, often one of the most challenging aspects of the separation is how the assets of the relationship will be divided. The interests of third parties such as family members, co-owners and business partners, can also be relevant.

We are highly experienced in alternative methods of resolving any dispute including negotiation and mediation and, in the event that parties agree to a property settlement outside of Court, we provide advice and assistance with preparing Consent Orders to be filed with the Family Court of Australia.
