Our lawyers have expert knowledge of superannuation law and its overlap with family law.
Superannuation is deemed to be property and will therefore form part of the matrimonial or de facto relationship pool of assets to be divided between separated parties.
This does not mean the non-member spouse will be paid a sum of money from the other party’s superannuation, but rather an amount is split off the spouse member’s entitlement and a new interest in the fund will be created for the nonmember spouse which can be retained in the original fund or rolled over to another fund nominated by that spouse.
Our dedicated team of superannuation and family law experts knows how to identify the concerns that need to be addressed and have the expertise to structure settlements so as to ensure that financial arrangements are as beneficial as possible.
