Divorce Property Settlement QLD

When a lawyer refers to “property settlement” they are referring to the division of assets arising out of a relationship such as a Marriage or De facto Relationship. For marriages, this is 1 year after a Divorce Certificate has been issued by the Federal Circuit Court. For De facto Relationships, this is 2 years after the date of separation.

It is important to understand that property settlement can take place at any time from the date of separation up and until the relevant time limit has lapsed. For marriages, this is 1 year after a Divorce Certificate has been issued by the Federal Circuit Court. For De facto Relationships, this is 2 years after the date of separation.

Is my ex entitled to half my house?

You do not have to be divorced to do property settlement. In fact, property settlement could technically occur the day after the parties have separated.

Property settlement carries with it the fallacy that each party will automatically receive 50/50% split of the assets once married. This is not true. There is no presumption that a person is entitled to 50% of the relationship assets.

There is also a belief that if a property is in only one party’s name then the other party cannot have a claim to the property. This is also not true. A property pool will include all assets of the parties regardless of who legally owns the asset.

The Family Law Courts use a 4 step process to assess what each party would likely receive from the relationship asset pool.

Try not to compare your matter with a friend’s, as every matter is different and what may appear on the face of it to be a simple property settlement may in fact be very complicated.

Amazing Service & Information - I am a Disability Advocate and I was ringing for a distressed client who had had a family member pass away. The lady on the phone was pleasant, professional and tended to my inquiry straight away. Would not hesitate to use this service again.

Thanks to Tracy, Rachael and the team for working with me to give me a better than expected outcome financially and essentially Tracy for keeping me on track during a tough mediation. Still some work to do but you guys have been so professional and helpful throughout this messy process.

The half hour webinar was extremely useful and easy to understand. In a difficult time, you don't want "legal speak" and this was definitely not that, highly recommend for anybody who has just seperated
