Consent Orders and Property Settlement in Family Law

In Perth Family Law you will want to terminate the financial relationship between you and your de facto partner or spouse when separating. There are time limitations. The Family Court of Western Australia will make Orders finishing the financial relationship between you. This can be done by agreement such as by a Form 11 which will be submitted to the Court with other required documents. When making an Application for Consent Orders or Property Settlement in the Family Court of Western Australia consider each section the following.

Effect of Property Orders Sought in relation to Property

The Court will consider the value of the property (or liability) each spouse will receive if the property orders are approved. List the value of the real estate, motor vehicles, furniture, furnishings and effects, funds in banks, building societies, credit unions or other financial institutions, interest in any business, investments including shares in public companies, life insurance policies and other property.

The gross value of the superannuation each spouse will receive if the Application for Consent Orders are approved by the Court is listed. Describe taxation consequences of orders sought in relation to interests in superannuation.
