Maleys can help you sort out your property settlement through:
- Consent orders
- Financial agreements
- Court proceedings
The main consideration in property settlement matters is whether the division of property is “just and equitable.” This means is the division “fair”?
Where a marriage has broken down the Court looks at matters such as the following to reach a fair settlement:
- The age and health of the parties
- What each “brought in” to the relationship
- Financial contributions made during the marriage
- Non financial contributions (e.g. contributions made as home maker)

We can also help if you want to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement before marriage.
