Property Settlement

Helping you move forward with security

Property Settlement

Once you have made the difficult decision to separate or divorce, you and your former partner will need to divide your assets, including your home, any vehicles and artworks, as well as your liabilities. Even if your separation is amicable, this can be a complex and emotionally difficult time. Strong and supportive representation is essential to ensure your financial situation is protected and that you are able to move forward with confidence.

At Clancy & Triado our experts in family law can support you through this process. We will listen to your story and work closely with you to identify and if necessary, value all the property, financial resources and liabilities belonging to you and your former partner before advising you of your entitlements.

Along with the valuations of your assets and liabilties, other factors that will influence your property settlement will include the length of your marriage or de facto relationship, the size of the asset pool, the contributions you and your partner have made, and your likely future financial circumstances.

With integrity and expertise we will represent you in negotiations and achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.

  • your family home
  • investment properties
  • shares and share options
  • businesses
  • trusts
