Property Settlement Lawyers in Brisbane and Caboolture
Do You Need a Property Settlement After Separation?
For individuals exiting a marriage or de-facto relationship, that question might not seem important at first. However, it’s not just a matter of “breaking up.” In long-running relationships, the divisions between individual finances and property often become blurry. It’s hard to agree on who owns what.
While equitable arrangements would be easy to reach in an ideal world, that isn’t the reality in which we live. Instead, disputes over property after separation are not uncommon. That’s where a property settlement lawyer in Brisbane can help. Your lawyer can negotiate and finalise a property settlement after separation, so that you and your former partner can come to a mutual agreement on the matter.

What is a Property Settlement?
A property settlement deals with the financial separation of you and your former partner. An agreement is reached that defines “who gets what”, taking everything into account. That includes the initial contributions you each made to the property pool, your roles during the relationship, and your future needs after separating.
Almost any couple in a long-term relationship will have a joint pool of property – things that have a financial value attached to them.
- Cash in bank accounts
- Real estate, such as the home you live in
- Large assets such as motor vehicles, boats, and caravans
- Home contents, everything from the furniture to the clothes in your wardrobe
- Shares and investment properties
- Businesses and trusts
- Superannuation funds
- Debts, such as credit cards and mortgages
