Understanding more about how property settlements work


The team at Perth Family Lawyers have combined experience of over forty years in dealing with family breakdown and property settlements.

A property settlement usually needs to be resolved between you and your former spouse or de facto following the breakdown of your relationship.  A property settlement allows you to move forward in your life, knowing what assets and liabilities you retain.  It is crucial to get advice early so that the team at Perth Family Lawyers can provide timely assistance to preserve your asset pool, and avoid the possibility of the other party dispersing or wasting assets, or acting in a non-commercial like fashion in your business.  We can only urge you to get advice early, even before you separate, to protect your interests.

Our team can advise you on the range of outcomes you can expect to receive through negotiation or litigation in the Family Court of Western Australia, or any other interstate Court dealing with property settlements.  We work tirelessly with you, consistently reassessing your options, to maximise your result.  Your property settlement matter deserves personalised attention and at Perth Family Lawyers we will work with you to strategically plan the best path forward to resolve matters as quickly as possible for you.

Court proceedings can be expensive and emotionally draining, so it is critical you consider your options and work towards a suitable resolution with Perth Family Lawyers.  We are highly experienced in negotiating outcomes for clients, or engaging in mediation, or arbitration, along with litigating matters in the Family Court if that is required.  Many of our clients contact us following a word of mouth referral, which is a testament to our experience and results.  Critically, we are often contacted by both parties seeking representation due to our extraordinary reputation.  Of course, we can only act for one party, so make sure you secure our services first.
