We will then advise you if your property should be divided and how property should be divided following your separation and why. The division of property following the breakdown of a marriage or relationship is unique to the circumstances of each family and to each separated couple's individual needs.
The contributions that were made to the asset pool of a marriage or relationship by each party during the relationship can be both financial, non-financial or both.
The future needs of you and your children also need to be considered, in order to ensure that you can negotiate and receive a just and equitable outcome in light of all the circumstances unique to your family situation.
Important decisions, such as whether or not to stay home and care for the young children, or whether you can continue to afford to provide this care following a separation or divorce are important to us here at McCarthy Family Law.
If you are struggling to support yourself financially following the breakdown of a relationship while waiting to negotiate a property settlement, we may be able to assist.
We can realistically discuss with you the timeframes involved for a settlement in your matter. Call our offices at your earliest convenience to confidentially discuss your situation.
