How do I resolve property/financial issues?

There are several options for resolving property or financial disputes.

If you and your partner can reach agreement on how your assets and liabilities should be shared you can choose to formalise this agreement. Either a binding financial agreement or consent orders can record the agreement.

Where you and your partner cannot reach agreement on how your assets and liabilities should be shared, an application can be made for the Court to hear your matter. This process is costly and time consuming.

We will always try to resolve your property/financial issues by way of agreement and we will only proceed to a Court hearing as a last option.

Mediation procedures are very effective in dispute resolution and are used to assist parties to reach financial settlements. Mediation is a in a dignified, timely and cost-effective process which can achieve a co-operative result for both parties.
