FAQs

The term “property settlement” refers to the process of dividing all belongings between the separating parties, regardless of whether the property is owned jointly or is held in a sole name. An agreed property settlement becomes legally binding through a Court Order of Binding Financial Agreement. A formal property settlement details what each member of a partnership will receive after separation. It will be customised according to the family in question and address how both tangible and intangible assets are to be distributed between the parties. Some of the most common property settlement agreements include divisions of:

  • Physical furniture
  • Land, houses, or property
  • Bank accounts
  • Trusts or funds
  • Insurance proceeds
    Shared debts

Property settlements may be handled amicably in the presence of lawyers or by a judge in court using a four-step process.

In Australia, a financial resource refers to a financial advantage that is or is likely to be enjoyed by a party, such as a life insurance policy. In contrast, an asset in family law is any form of physical or intangible property that a party owns. This includes items of furniture, land, homes, and more.

Under Australian Family Law, both financial resources and assets are to be included in property settlements. Separating partners always have the option to agree on the division of their matrimonial property on their own and then turn to a lawyer to make the agreement legally binding. In circumstances where an agreement cannot be reached between the parties despite all effort, a Court can decide the separation of assets according to law.

Our lawyers at Collective Family Law Group can help you navigate your property settlement by providing you with clear, accurate and reliable advice tailored to your unique circumstances.

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be married for a property settlement to take place. De facto partners may also have a considerable amount of trouble splitting their belongings in the event of separation or departure. Having property settlement lawyers in Brisbane on your side, you can rest easy in coming to a swift, logical, and mutually beneficial conclusion.

Many people going through a separation are hopeful that their property will be divided equally between the separating parties. But this is not always the case as an even split of property may not be considered just and fair in the eyes of the law in particular circumstances. In your initial consultation with Collective Family Law Group, our experienced lawyers will usually be able to give you an idea of what percentage range of the property pool you may be entitled to.
