Property Settlements & Disputes

Property matters can be some of the most complex and contentious issues in family law.

Our lawyers are skilled in all aspects of property law, including the division of assets and debts and superannuation entitlements. 

We can assist you in negotiating and drafting a property settlement agreement that meets your individual needs and goals, while ensuring that your legal rights and obligations are protected.

Settlement options include Consent Orders and Binding Financial Agreements (BFA).

Consent Orders

Consent Orders are agreements that are approved by the Court and are legally binding. They can cover a wide range of property settlement issues, including the division of assets and debts and superannuation.

Binding Financial Agreements

BFAs are binding agreements that are made between the parties and do not require approval by the Court. BFAs also known as prenuptial agreements or postnuptial agreements, are legal agreements that set out how property and financial resources will be divided in the event of separation or divorce. These documents can be used to cover a range of property matters, including the division of assets and debts, spousal maintenance, and superannuation entitlements.

Court Proceedings

In cases where disputes arise, we can provide expert representation in Court proceedings, including mediation and arbitration. We understand that disputes can be emotionally challenging and stressful, and we strive to help our clients achieve a resolution that is fair and equitable, while minimising conflict and stress.
