Separated married and de facto spouses need to be fully aware of their rights and entitlements and these will vary depending on the range of facts and circumstances which exist in each particular case.
The majority of financial settlements between separating parties are achieved through negotiation, and without court intervention.
This process will generally involve the parties making full disclosure to each other of relevant financial documents, and navigating the path towards a fair and equitable distribution of their assets and liabilities. This may be achieved by direct discussions between separated parties, by negotiation through lawyers or with the assistance of the dispute resolution process, including mediation.
