At your first conference with me, I will explain to you in some depth the 4 step process used by the Court, in deciding who gets what in a property settlement.

I will also explain to you the various options available for reaching a settlement, and how this settlement can be recorded and put into effect.

I will then get information from you regarding:

  • What your current assets and liabilities are
  • The length of your relationship
  • The history of your respective incomes and other contributions (including those  contributions made as a parent and home maker)
  • Details of the children of the relationship
  • Details about your current, and future employment options

In identifying your assets and liabilities, it will be helpful if you bring with you:

  • Copies of all current bank statements (including mortgage statements)
  • Your last tax return
  • Your most recent superannuation statements
  • Financial reports for any business or trust that you may have an interest in

At the conclusion of our first meeting, I will be in a position to provide you with advice as to what your entitlements are, and a realistic range of outcomes you can expect.
