SEPARATION Law Matters
If you have recently separated and you believe there is little chance of resolution, there are three main issues to consider:
- The division of all matrimonial property including real estate, superannuation, bank accounts, shares and who will be responsible for any debt. A person may seek a property settlement promptly following and separation from a former spouse or de facto partner. There is no requirement to be divorced before settling your financial affairs.
- Who will care for and support the children of the relationship.
-The legal end of a marriage. A couple must be separated for at least 12 months prior to making an Application to the Court for a divorce.
