Property Settlement: your case is unique.
You have finally separated. Do you feel a sense of loss? Or are you experiencing sense of relief at finally calling it a day?
Whatever the case you will experience a sense of uncertainty. How will you and your former partner distribute your property and your debts? How long will it take and how much will it cost?
The answers to these questions differ from family to family. Every case is unique with its own combination of issues be they arising out of taxation, superannuation benefits, real estate, private companies and private businesses, employment packages, family trusts and wills.
If you start a new relationship you may need to think about protecting your assets from future claims if this relationship breaks down. This is especially so if you want to protect children from your earlier relationship. Consider a financial agreement covering terms of property settlement if you die or the relationship breaks down.
