Property Settlement Following Separation - Do you know what to do NEXT?
First of all seek advice, which is why you are here, and don't become overwhelmed. Make sure that your actions are reasonable so as not to lead into serious conflict (which might lead to unnecessary Court proceedings). If you are contemplating separation you should seek advice from a competent family law solicitor. Our family law team of Mark Francis, Randal Binnie and Sandra Kelly are experienced family lawyers and will help you get the best outcome possible for you.
If you and your partner are trying to reach a property settlement agreement but cannot agree how to resolve your property issues you should seek legal advice in relation to your particular circumstances. Be wary of advice to commence court proceedings without first considering your other options. Initial legal advice then negotiation, Mediation and Collaborative Law should be the first steps in most cases, except where family violence and/or abuse of children and protection of assets would prevent that approach.
If you have reached an agreement regarding property issues you should formalise the agreement to ensure that all financial issues are finalised between you in accordance with the provisions of the Family Law Act. This can be achieved by way of Consent Orders or a Financial Agreement (sometimes called a Binding Financial Agreement or separation agreement). Without a legal end to property issues litigation in the Family Court will remain a possibility even if you are divorced. We have fixed fees for consent orders and financial agreements and can quote those fees after meeting with you in the initial appointment.
