Frequently Asked Questions

Reaching a property settlement agreement without seeing a lawyer is possible, but it’s not recommended unless you have a comprehensive awareness of property settlement law. The Family Law Act outlines legal principles governing property settlements, ensuring both parties have a fair and equitable outcome. However, you may not fully understand property settlement laws and your rights without legal advice.

Consulting with a family lawyer experienced in property settlement matters can help you navigate the legal process effectively. They can provide advice tailored to your specific circumstances, ensuring any agreement reached is legally binding and represents an equitable division of assets based on the property pool and other factors.

In addition to income, assets, and financial resources, the Family Law Act considers various factors during property settlement. These include non-financial contributions, such as homemaking and childcare, made by each party during the relationship. The court also assesses future needs, including earning capacity, health, and caregiving responsibilities, to determine a just and equitable division of the property pool.

Intellectual property, post-separation assets, and ongoing obligations are also considered. Seeking legal advice from a family lawyer can help you understand how these factors apply to your specific situation and ensure your property settlement reflects a fair division based on your circumstances.

Consent orders and binding financial agreements are two methods of formalising property settlements under the Family Law Act. Consent orders are agreements the family court approves, outlining how the parties will divide assets. These orders are legally binding and enforceable, providing certainty and finality to the settlement process.

On the other hand, binding financial agreements are private contracts entered into by parties outlining their property division arrangements. While binding financial agreements offer flexibility and privacy, they must comply with strict legal requirements and receive independent legal advice from a family lawyer. Understanding the differences between these two options is crucial in choosing the most appropriate method for formalising your property settlement.

A de facto relationship property settlement is similar to a divorce settlement regarding legal principles and the process involved. Just like in a divorce, the family law courts consider factors such as the asset pool, property owned by the parties involved, financial matters, and the ongoing obligations of each former spouse or de facto partner.

The goal is to achieve a just and equitable outcome for both parties. Regardless of whether the relationship was a marriage or a de facto partnership, the court decides on an appropriate outcome based on the case’s specific circumstances. Each party must receive independent legal advice to understand their rights and options.

Spousal maintenance refers to the financial support paid by one former spouse or de facto partner to another after the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship. It is typically paid when one party cannot adequately support themselves financially, and the other party can contribute. Spousal maintenance aims to ensure that both parties can maintain a reasonable standard of living post-separation.

The family law courts may order spousal maintenance after considering factors such as the financial needs and earning capacity of each party, the length of the relationship, and any other relevant circumstances. Seeking legal advice from experienced property settlement lawyers, like our Gold Coast team at Advance Family Law, can help clarify your rights and obligations regarding spousal maintenance.
