Property Settlement

Property settlement is the process of dividing shared assets following the breakdown of a relationship and subsequent separation. Property settlement not only covers real estate, but also vehicles, shares, family trusts, superannuation, business interests, jewellery, cash, and more. Our property settlement lawyers in Newtown can represent you in all property matters, ensuring you receive your full entitlements and achieve your goals.

Consent Orders are often the most effective way of creating a property settlement agreement, as they are legally binding and allow you to avoid court proceedings. Our team can draft legally binding Consent Orders and assist with expert negotiation to ensure all parties – and their legal representatives – agree to the terms of the settlement. If both parties cannot agree to fair and equitable terms, or a Consent Order is not the best course of action, your property settlement may need to be finalised in a Family Court hearing. In all matters that appear before the court, Buckley Lawyers will represent you strongly, ensuring the best possible outcome.

What Are Your Entitlements During a Property Settlement?

In Australia, ex-spouses are not entitled to a 50/50 split of assets during a property settlement. Instead, you may be entitled to a greater or lesser share depending on what contributions you made during the relationship (both financial and non-financial), your future needs, and other relevant factors.

If your property settlement is not seen as fair and equitable by the courts, your Consent Order application will not be approved, and the Order will not be legally binding.

Similarly, if an agreement cannot be reached and your case goes before the Family Court, these are the criteria that the court will use during your hearing.
