Relationship property & divorce

“Divorce is never a pleasant experience. You look upon it as a failure. But I learned to be a different person once we broke up. Sometimes you learn more from failure than you do from success.”

We specialise in two relationship property areas:

  • contracting out agreements (Americans call them pre-nuptial agreements) designed to identify and ring-fence your separate property so that it doesn’t become relationship property (and therefore not divided with your partner/spouse on a separation)
  • settlement agreements recording an agreed division of relationship property/relationship debt following separation.

Our focus is on reaching a negotiated outcome, thereby avoiding expensive, stressful and uncertain Court proceedings at a time when clients are at their most vulnerable. In this context the saying is often true – only the lawyers win in Court proceedings.

Most clients just want a fair division of relationship property. We can help you navigate through this mine field.

Our services include:

  • Relationship property contracting out agreements
  • Relationship property settlement agreements following separation
  • Related property and commercial asset transfers
  • Divorce (marriage dissolution)
