A fair share – Negotiating your property settlement

Most married or de facto couples acquire assets (like real estate and motor vehicles) and liabilities during their relationship. Resolving who gets what can cause conflict and tension when couples separate.

This guide will help you with the process of dividing up your property. The main emphasis is on how Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) can help you through this process.

Whether you have been married or living as a de facto couple, whether you have been living together for many years or only months, separation is a painful and disruptive time.

Finalising arrangements for property (and for children if you have them) can be complex and emotionally draining. While the majority of couples resolve things satisfactorily and move on with their lives, it does take time.
