Property and Divorce

Every year almost 50,000 marriages in Australia end in divorce, and an even greater number of relationships break down.

A relationship breakdown can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life, particularly if it is not amicable and there are children involved. It can leave you completely mentally and emotionally drained.


Having to sell a beloved family home is an added emotional stress and you can find yourself in the middle of a nightmare.

The laws around property settlement in these types of situations can be quite complex. In addition, there have been changes to the Family Law Act 1975 (the Act) that can impact the final outcome of a property settlement.
