Family Law

Property Settlement

After the breakdown of a relationship it is common then to resolve how the property of the relationship is to be divided – the family law property settlement. The family law solicitors at our firm have a wealth of experience in this complicated area of law.

There are a variety of issues that need to be considered, some of which are not immediately considered relevant, such as the parties' superannuation. Determining what is the property pool of the relationship and then how it is to be divided is not always a simple process. There are several factors that the Court will consider when determining the division of assets, some of which cover the following:

- Assets held by each party, including superannuation
- Domestic duties performed by either party, such as household chores
- Who looked after the children
- Gifts received by either party
- The financial contributions of each party
- Any inheritance

Our family lawyers carefully consider all aspects of your case and advise you on what you are entitled to. They will then negotiate with the other side in an attempt to reach an amicable outcome.

We understand the frustration and expense that can arise from lengthy court battles and you can be assured that our lawyers aim to settle matters without recourse to court action.

If your matter settles out of court we will draft Consent Orders that will then be filed with the Court. Once granted, the property settlement becomes formally recognised at law and is legally enforceable.

If negotiation fails, our family lawyers are experienced in Family Law Court litigation and will provide you with exceptional legal advice and representation in obtaining Property Orders that reflect your entitlement.

The complexity and unpredictability of the law and Court process requires experience and expertise in this highly specialised area of the law. Without competent legal advice, it is difficult to determine whether or not you are settling for what you are properly entitled to.

We also recognise that there are many people who have an entitlement to property, however, are unable to engage the services of an experienced family lawyer, due to a lack of available funds. For this reason, Prime Lawyers also offers the "Blue Ribbon" payment option for approved Family Law clients. The "Blue Ribbon" payment option to approved clients is a deferred payment option, where Prime Lawyers' legal fees are paid once the matter has ended.
