How we can help with your finances

Financial matters should be considered whether you are:

  • entering into a de facto relationship
  • starting cohabitation (living together)
  • purchasing property
  • getting married; or
  • going through a separation.

There are multiple ways to formalise an agreement regarding the adjustment of property interests in the event of a separation. This can be done before, during, or after the relationship.

If you would like to discuss protecting your assets or understanding your entitlements in case of a separation, don’t hesitate to contact us. The earlier you seek advice from our experienced family lawyers, the better.

Time limitations are important to consider in case of a separation

  1. For a de facto relationship: any application for property adjustment must be initiated within two years of separation.
  2. If you are married: the time limit begins from the date you become divorced, and any application for property adjustment must be initiated within one year.

Questions about Financial Matters?

In Australia, the Family Law Act applies a four-step process to determine property division. This involves identifying and valuing assets and liabilities, considering the financial and non-financial contributions of each party, assessing future needs, and determining a fair and equitable division.

Yes, you can protect your assets through a Binding Financial Agreement (BFA) or a prenuptial agreement. A properly drafted BFA can help clarify financial arrangements and provide certainty in the event of a future separation.

Generally, inheritances and gifts received during a relationship are considered part of the asset pool and are subject to division. However, the Court will take into account various factors, including the nature and timing of the inheritance or gift, when determining its treatment in the property settlement.

Spousal maintenance is financial support provided by one party to the other after separation or divorce. The Court considers factors such as the income, earning capacity, and financial needs of both parties when determining the amount and duration of spousal maintenance.

If you suspect that your former partner is hiding assets or not disclosing their true financial position, you can seek financial disclosure through legal channels. This may involve obtaining relevant financial documents, engaging financial experts, or applying to the Court for orders to compel disclosure.
