    What is Property Settlement

    Property settlement under family law involves the legal process of dividing assets, liabilities, and financial resources between individuals after the end of a marriage or de facto relationship.

    This division is not automatically a 50/50 split but considers various factors, including each party’s contributions (financial, homemaking, or parenting), future needs (health, earning capacity, and overall financial circumstances), and the necessity for a fair and equitable outcome.

    Family law property settlements can be privately agreed upon between parties or mediated by legal representatives. However, they often require court approval to ensure the division is just and complies with legal standards, thereby finalising the separation aspect of these relationships.

    I received excellent legal representation. Juliana’s and Monique’s professionalism is remarkable, along with their knowledge and execution of the law. With this being, not only a very difficult situation, but it was also an extremely sensitive and emotional time in my life and Monique handled this case from beginning to end with what I would consider perfection in every aspect. Highly recommend !! 🤗🤗😊 Thanks, J Yousef
