Family Law Property Settlement
Cutting Edge Advice
Complex property settlements require financial expertise to ensure that you are fully aware of the financial and taxation consequences associated with your property settlement.
Family lawyers tend to concentrate on the division of property on a percentages basis – i.e. whether you get 60% or some other percentage, of the property pool. What this translates to however, in terms of exactly which assets you end up retaining, also needs to be considered with great care.
It may be more advantageous for you to retain some assets over others, depending on your personal circumstances and needs. This is where our expertise is at the cutting edge.
We specialise in empowering you to confidently negotiate all options available to you. We provide you with the knowledge about the consequences, advantages and disadvantages, of accepting different property settlement options. You need to know facts such as how to manage tax; which assets might have inherent tax liabilities; how to structure your new circumstances to protect your assets and suit your needs; and if you can save tax by utilising a child maintenance trust.
