Upon the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship couples usually need to finish their financial relationship. This means dividing the assets and liabilities of their marriage or de facto relationship according to Family Law. It may involve getting an order from the Family Court of Western Australia by consent so you do not have to appear in court but can have the peace of mind that the financial relationship is terminated so far as is practicable by an order of the family court.
In Perth, Western Australia, the financial relationship between married or de facto couples is not usually terminated until an order has been made by the Family Court of Western Australia.
An order can be made by consent (agreement) or through judicial determination of the Family Court. At Bodekers Family Lawyers & Mediators we can assist you to reach agreement on ending the financial relationship through less adversarial approaches such as mediation, mediation style conferencing and informal conferencing. You would know what the range of your entitlement is under The Family Law Act or The Family Court Act and other relevant legislation and case law by our experienced family law guidance. This can be firmed up through the barristers that support us who can provide a counsel opinion if necessary. This may be the case in more complex financial matters where it usually is not necessary to participate in protracted, embarrassing and stressful litigation which can be expensive.
