Family Law Property Settlement Lawyers and Superannuation Assistance, Guidance and Representation
Our skilled Property Settlement Lawyers will explore all dispute resolution options and help you negotiate a fair and reasonable deal. Our creative Brisbane property settlement lawyers will explain to you the numerous factors to be taken into account when deciding on a split, including contributions, length of the marriage, future needs, children and anything that might affect how property should be divided. It is wise and essential to get legal assistance with a qualified and experienced divorce lawyer before splitting marital assets.
In Australia, a property settlement needs to be equitable, not equal. Your dedicated divorce lawyer will provide you with an affirmative estimate of what you would be entitled to in the property split if your matter ever went to court. It is with that estimate our Brisbane family lawyers negotiate with the other side to reach a fair deal.
If you can’t come to an amicable agreement, it’s best that both sides get legal advice from a compassionate family lawyer, so you can understand your legal rights and entitlements. Most of the time when both parties have seen separate lawyers they will usually be able to come to an agreement through negotiation.
In property settlement matters our clever divorce lawyers can provide fixed fee arrangements or pay-at-the-end arrangements on a case by case basis.
Property Settlement Solutions when you’ve already agreed on a split
If you’ve already reached an amicable agreement and simply would like to formalise what was agreed, then family court consent orders are the most commonly used option and solution. Another way to formally document your divorce or family law property settlement is by way of financial agreement.
Divorce and Separation
Whether you need assistance with a divorce application or simply some advice, our compassionate confident Brisbane divorce lawyers have the experience and knowledge to handle your divorce proceedings with the utmost professionalism and sensitivity. The financial dissolution of a marriage is one of the largest components in a divorce law case but it’s only a component, getting a divorce is a separate legal step. Learn more about divorce.
For a divorce to be accepted the family law court simply needs to be satisfied that suitable arrangements are made for the care of your children. Our helpful divorce lawyers commonly complete divorce applications with ease, knowing exactly how to get them through the family court. Generally, the family law court just wants to know the parents have come up with common-sense arrangements once the divorce takes effect. It is not a requirement that parenting orders are finalised, or a parenting plan be agreed to. Often parties put the interim parenting arrangements down, even if the children are not spending time with the other party. The court only needs to be satisfied the children are being clothed, fed and are going to school (if applicable).
Before our skilled divorce lawyers assist you with a divorce application, it is essential to be aware of time limits in relation to property distribution. You will only have 12 months from the date of divorce to enforce your property entitlements.
If you’ve been in a de facto relationship, you may be just as entitled to seek adjustments in property as someone married for the same length of time.
