When a relationship ends, property must be divided. In this case, ‘property’ refers not only to all of your financial assets (for example, home, businesses, shares, pensions, and some superannuation) but to the debts you owe, as well. Often couples can come to an agreement (binding financial agreement) about how things should be divided, based upon relative need, earning capacity, and who will have primary custody of any children. This approach, which involves Melbourne family lawyers preparing the documents and no court appearances, is by far the quickest and most cost-effective approach to settlement.
