In this episode of JOY Law, we discuss matters concerning property settlement when relationships end.
We talked about the steps to working through a property settlement, including:
- proving relationship status (a key consideration given same sex marriage is not yet legal in Australia);
- agreeing on the property and assets to be divided;
- financial and non-financial contributions to the relationship;
- arriving at a ‘just and equitable distribution’ of property;
- time periods to make a claim to the courts about property settlement disputes; and
- reaching agreement about pets.
