Did you know?
- Superannuation interests can be split, and a separate superannuation account opened in the name of each of the parties, making it easier to split all of the assets between the parties.
- You can make a claim for spousal maintenance in addition to a property settlement. Spousal maintenance can be ordered by a court on an interim basis until a final hearing, or at a final hearing for weekly payment from one spouse to another. And any money received pursuant to means tested or Centerlink pension is irrelevant for the calculation of the amount of spousal maintenance payable.Proceeds of a personal injuries claim received during or even after separation are a relevant asset for consideration by the court.
- Inheritances received during a relationship are important contributions to the pool of assets on behalf of the beneficiary, and an adjustment in favour of the beneficiary is likely, especially if the inheritance was received late in the relationship. Inheritances received after separation are still relevant to a court and need to be taken into account.
- The value of a business can be difficult to agree upon, and the court has the power to appoint a specialist valuer for this purpose.
