Duty of Disclosure in Financial Matters

June 21, 2016 – at 4:04 am – by Bodekers Family Lawyers

Under the Family Law Rules 2004 each party is to give full and frank disclosure of all relevant information to the other party, in a timely manner.

The following are examples of areas that require full and frank disclosure:

• The party’s earnings;

• Any interest the party has in property, both personally and by legal entities which the party has a level of control over;

• The party’s other financial resources;

• Any trust to which the party is connected;

• Any disposal of property;

• Liabilities.

Financial matters can be very complex. We therefore recommend you seek legal advice from one of our very experienced Perth family lawyers. We invite you to discuss your particular matter with our Legal Practitioner Director, Ms. Shannon Bodeker, who has been working in family law for over 20 years.

Prior to your first appointment, you may send us an email, fax or similar, outlining your situation in as much detail as you like. This information will be read on a complimentary basis prior to your first family law appointment. We get to know you and your family law matter before we meet.

Please note this is not family law advice. It is important to seek advice specific to your circumstances. We are very experienced Perth family law solicitors and can provide you with the very best legal advice regarding financial matters.
