The dividing up of assets is an unavoidable task to carry out upon the breakdown of a relationship. Property Settlement is the process by which both parties will attempt to negotiate to form an agreement concerning income, assets and liabilities.

It is essential to get legal advice from a property settlement lawyer if you are involved in a relationship breakdown. This is because the law states that property settlement agreements can only be recognised if the parties involved have sought independent legal advice. Watson & Watson’s Family Lawyers are experienced in resolving disputes over property settlement, and ensuring our clients get the share of assets they deserve.

How our family lawyers help with Property Settlement

Due to our vast experience acting for clients in Family Law matters, our family lawyers know the rules surrounding Property Settlement and how best to apply them to your matter.

Reaching Property Settlement agreements will initially involve a process of negotiation between the parties. Watson & Watson Family Lawyers are experienced negotiators, and can help to guide you through this process. Should initial negotiations fail, we can act for you in dispute resolution processes such as mediation or arbitration, seeing your matter through to finality.

In the event that an outcome cannot be reached throughout this process, we can advocate on your behalf in the Family Court. The court will take into consideration factors such as the property help by each party, along with financial, parenting and homemaker contributions made by each party, and the future needs of each party.
