Each case is different, contrary to popular belief; there is no automatic right or presumption in every case to have a property settlement. The ultimate goal of the Court is to ensure that the property settlement is just and equitable.
A Four-Step Process should be applied in order to ascertain whether a just and equitable settlement is reached by the parties:
The Family Law Act requires parties to the proceedings make a genuine effort to resolve their property settlement dispute prior to filing an application with the Court. Our lawyers will guide you through the negotiations involved in a property settlement, ensuring you receive a property settlement that is just and equitable and within the range the Court would order.
