Separations are generally difficult for both partners and children. One of the hardest side of separation is reaching an agreement on financial or property matters. This agreement is known as property settlement, here property includes all your assets and liabilities whether they are in your or your partner’s name only, in joint names or in the name of a company or a trust. In this kind of situation, a guidance from an experienced person is always advisable.
Married couples get 1 year from the date of their divorce to complete property settlement or issue court action and de facto couples get 2 years from the date of separation to finalize property settlement.
There is no assumption in the law that the property should be divided equally (50%/50%) between both the parties and also there is no set rules that the court follow to split the property between the parties. The property settlement depends on circumstances of each case and other multiple factors like financial condition of both parties, future needs according to their health and age, non-financial contribution, and the necessity to care for any children. Finally, the court decides whether the suggested percentage of property division is right, appropriate and unbiased in all of the situations.
