The best course of action when there are property matters to settle in a de facto relationship separation or Divorce is to seek legal advice straight away. There is a window of opportunity to make a claim to your entitlements. You don’t want to miss the claim cutoff. Evans Brandon are the premier property settlement lawyers on the Gold Coast.
Property is all your assets and liabilities:
If you are considering settling your property issues without legal advice remember that Court Orders and Binding Financial Agreements exist to prevent future claims.
Evans Brandon Family Lawyers and our team of property settlement lawyers regularly appear on matters in front of Family Law Courts in Brisbane and throughout Queensland as well as interstate.
If you have not fully disclosed all your assets, liabilities and financial resources to The Court, it’s unlikely you will achieve your preferred outcome.
Make a copy of all financial documentation before leaving the family home. Keep them in a safe place or with your family lawyer.
After 12 months of your Divorce being finalised, or 24 months of separation in a de facto relationship, you may not be able to apply for property adjustments. You will need to seek the permission of the Court.
