Financial and Property Settlement for Married and De Facto Couples

When people separate, it is important to sort out how to divide your assets (property) and debts that have acquired through the marriage or de-facto relationship. There are various ways this can be done including negotiating on arrangements with your former partner to come to an agreement as to how outstanding financial matters of the relationship are to be dealt with.

This Agreement is usually solidified with the Family Court of Western Australia through an Application for Consent Orders which contains a document signed between the parties as to how outstanding financial matters of the relationship are to be dealt with- or formally known as a Minute of Consent Orders.

There are many aspects of a Financial/Property Settlement besides ownership of property. These may include businesses owned jointly with your former spouse or partner. Those business arrangements, tax implications and contracts need to be considered. There may be immigration matters which need to be considered or you may require further information on your rights in respect of your superannuation. At Lawyer Perth we consider all relevant associated issues, so you can be clearly informed on all issues before making decisions.

At Lawyer Perh, we offer fixed-fee services for the preparation of the Application for Consent Orders and Minute of Consent Orders and liaising with the other side (or their representatives) in finalising the Application for Consent Orders and Minute of Consent Orders for financial/property settlement matters.*
