    The Law

    The Family Law Act 1975 (“the Act”) sets out the law on how property settlements are worked out.

    Normally, proceedings are commenced no later than 12 months after a divorce.

    Actions we will take include:

    • explaining all issues to you,
    • guiding you through the four stages of a property settlement,
    • identifying your superannuation splitting entitlements, and
    • obtaining the best possible outcome.

    The first step is to attend an initial consultation, at any of our local offices or by telephone or video-conference.

    The meeting provides you with an opportunity to:

    • meet your dedicated lawyer,

    • identify your options,
    • map solutions, and
