Property Settlement for Married, De facto and Same Sex Couples
Chris Rowe has extensive experience in the complex and ever-changing environment of Property Settlements. People’s lives and finances are becoming more complicated; a property or financial settlement may need to cover a wide range of assets including:
- The matrimonial home
- Investment properties and shares
- Trust, company and partnership structures
- Businesses and farms
Over the last twenty years or so, we have seen the States refer their powers to the Commonwealth for property disputes involving de facto and same sex couples, as well as the introduction of the superannuation splitting regime. Self-managed superannuation funds have become more common in recent years and need special attention.
The only way in which a property settlement agreement or order can be made “bullet proof” is if it complies with the requirements in the Family Law Act. Attempting your own property settlement is fraught with dangers, such as remaining susceptible to future claims, unforeseen stamp duty, capital gains, and income tax consequences, particularly in more complex matters.
We have the skills and experience to represent you in the Family Court. If necessary we can instruct trusted and experienced Barristers on your behalf to act decisively and assertively for you. Chris Rowe and his team will protect and advance your rights and interests according to law.
Whether you are thinking about separation or have already separated, the time is now to see Chris Rowe to get things moving – delaying is understandable but can lead to problems down the track.
