Pursuant to the Family Law Act (1975), the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia have the power to deal with property held by both married and de facto partners who have separated.
Our family law solicitors have the necessary expertise to deal with all areas of property settlements, including those of a highly complex nature involving corporations and trusts. We have excellent working relationships with highly regarded and skilled barristers, mediators and accountants, all of whom assist us in obtaining successful outcomes for our clients.
It is important to obtain advice about your financial position as soon as possible leading up to or after your separation from your partner.
Your actions, and those of your partner, may have a long-term effect on your future financial entitlements. By obtaining early advice you will better understand your rights and entitlements regarding the division of property, including superannuation.
We are committed to providing our clients with considered advice. Our preference is to obtain a negotiated resolution, but where necessary we are well equipped to litigate on behalf of our clients.
