Law in a minute: Financial Settlements
When two people separate (after a very long relationship), financial issues can become problematic. Because there is stress involved with the separation itself, and you have to start thinking about how to split these assets up & how to finalize things. This can often become a complicated process, especially if there are a lot of assets or children involved.
The most important thing after a separation has taken place is to seek legal advice as early in the process as possible. Because the sooner you’re aware of your rights and obligations. The sooner you’re going to be able to take steps to formalize matters between you and your former partner.
As a Brisbane family lawyer, I will take all of those things into consideration and do my best to help you to reach a financial settlement, which is as suitable for you as it can be.
