Property Lawyers Perth
Whilst common properties are identified as houses and financial assets, they can also include but are not limited to businesses, trust funds, investments, superannuations and pension entitlements. It also includes any outstanding debts or liabilities. An important and often overlooked factor is each persons future requirements and ability to meet them, as well as how it might impact on your living conditions and that of any dependants. Our property lawyers can assist with these matters.
When resolving a property division dispute, the Family Court enters into a four step process, namely:
- Identify the nature and value of the property of the marriage/relationship;
- Identify the financial and non-financial contributions of the parties and thus their entitlements based on their respective contributions;
- Consider whether there should be any adjustment to the parties entitlements in Step 2, based upon their present and future circumstances; and
- Consider the effect of the findings in Step 2 and 3 and make an order that is just and equitable.
