Before you accept or reject any offer of property settlement in family law from your spouse, you should seek guidance from an expert solicitor, if the offer of property division is within the reasonable range of your expectations.

When working at a property settlement family court, there is a thorough four-step process:

  • One must assess the assets, liabilities, and all sorts of financial resources of both parties, whether in Australia or overseas. This is important in determining the net pool of the assets that are made available for the property division in the family court.
  • Considering both contributions (financial and non-financial) made by both parties to the assets during the relationship (in some cases, also post-separation).
  • Understand the future needs of the parties that can be taken into account. This includes factors that impact each party’s overall entitlement like child care, health concerns, and maximum earning capacity.
  • Once the above-stated factors are assessed, the overall conclusion and equitable distribution on all circumstances are calculated.

The jurisdictional family law is considered highly discretionary, and each case is treated differently with different outcomes.
