Property Settlement

Splitting Assets And Dividing Property

Property Settlement

When a relationship dissolves many people have very different ideas on what is fair and equitable in terms of splitting assets and dividing property.

Many of our clients have accumulated an extensive portfolio of assets which must all be identified and valued when getting a divorce or separation as part of the property settlement.

Assets may include:

  • Real estate (both commercial and residential), from the family home through to large scale development projects
  • Superannuation (including self-managed funds)
  • A family business or other business interests
  • Interests in Companies and Trusts
  • Shares
  • Bank accounts
  • Personal items
  • Motor Vehicles, Motor Bikes, boats, trailers horse floats etc
  • Intellectual property, trademarks, and patents
  • Pets

These assets can be in your own name, owned jointly or in the name of a company or trust. 

Sometimes we also need to bring in a forensic accountant or other expert to help identify these assets or the value associated with them and we have access to professionals with extensive experience in this field.

Our team is experienced in dealing with complex financial structures and will work hard to ensure all assets are identified and included in the asset pool prior to any final property settlements being made.
