- Can I still see my children?
- What can I do if there is family violence?
- Do I need to move out of the former home?
- What happens if we’re still living together?
- What will happen to our assets?
- What happens to my superannuation entitlements?
- What if we have a business together?
- Do we need to go to court?

Our lawyers may be able to assist after this time; however, getting a favourable property settlement will be harder. You may need show the courts why they should look at your application.

- How long should I wait to commence property settlement?
- How is everything split?
- What’s the process for determining property division?
- What property gets divided when the relationship ends?

- What happens to debts?
Our lawyers will advise you on how you should handle your finances after the property settlement is complete.
