Property and Financial Settlements
Famiy Dispute Resolution can assist with your property settlement and other financial matters, such as urgent expenses and longer term issues like superannuation. In general, each person's contributions, financial and non-financial, as well as their future needs, will have some bearing on the property settlement. In addition, the aim is to secure a settlement that is fair and equitable for all parties.
As part of the process, you'll be required to fully disclose to each other all financial information or documents relevant to the matters under discussion. Sydney Dispute Resolution recommends each party seeks independent legal advice with regard to financial and property settlements before and during FDR.
If you wish to make your financial agreement legally binding, you can ask a lawyer to draft a Binding Financial Agreement or apply to the Court to have your agreement made into a Consent Order.
