Family law has moved away from being predominantly adversarial; changes in legislation reflect this notion.

Family Courts encourage mediation, arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution as a means of resolving family law disputes. The law also encourages property settlements, that is, for property to be divided by agreement. This is the alternative to having property divided by a Court.

Our Sydney Family Lawyers focus on assisting clients deal with their family law disputes in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible. Specifically, our Family Law Lawyers look towards property settlements, mediation and dispute resolution, prior to proceeding to Family Court.

Property claims add to the stress of the after-effects of a divorce or separation.

Our Family Lawyers are highly experienced in the area of property claims and property settlement.  Over the years, we have represented clients in a broad range of matters with matrimonial pools and estates ranging some small personal effects and other financial commitments, to complicated business, entity or family trust structures, involving several parties and other third parties, many properties and multi-million dollar assets and estates and multi-million dollar commitments. 

There are a number of ways in which a property settlement may be issued:

  1. Binding financial agreement;
  2. Consent orders; or
  3. Court proceedings for Court orders. 

Where there is a binding financial agreement in place, the operative provisions of the agreement relating to the division of property between the parties are usually drafted to come into force once the parties separate or upon a divorce. A binding financial agreement is generally drawn up before two parties decide to live together or marry. For further information on binding financial agreements, you can refer to our website. 

Where no binding financial agreement exists and the relationship breaks down, the parties will need to arrange a property settlement separate to the divorce. Consent orders are basically orders that the parties have agreed upon and tendered to the court. If the court is satisfied with the orders, the court will usually make the orders legally enforceable. Consent orders are advantageous in that the parties have control and certainty of the outcome, subject of course to the final approval of the Court. Where the parties cannot come to any form of agreement, the court will make the orders it sees fit.

If there is no binding financial agreement in place and the parties are unable to arrive at an agreement to enter into Consent orders, then the parties will often be left with no option but to commence court proceedings seeking appropriate Court orders for the division of property.  Making an application for a property settlement can be complicated and will often be stressful and expensive. You must consider all possible assets, liabilities, income, expenses and financial resources and superannuation of yourself and your ex-partner. Assets may include the division of debts payable to the parties, property and even superannuation. 

Regardless of how you arrive at a property settlement, a family Lawyer can ensure that the legal technicalities are satisfied and the settlement will be legally recognised. Further, a Family Lawyer can also ensure that your agreement or the outcome is properly documented to minimise the risk of there being a any further non-compliance.

The Family Lawyers at Navado Lawyers & Solicitors are highly experienced in the resolution of property claims and property settlements and have advised on a range of complex matters. Contact one of our Family Lawyers to book your first free consultation today.
