Enforcing will property settlements
Probate refers to the process of identifying and formally settling the assets and liabilities of a deceased as part of their desire in their will.

Even if you have already reached an agreement with your partner we strongly recommend you seek legal advice to ensure the agreement is likely to be accepted by a court. We come across clients all the time who go to Court unrepresented – only to have a Judge tell them to get legal advice as their agreement is not fair or reasonable. There are also strict time limits for certain types of property settlements being filed with a Court so if you wait too long, you can miss out altogether and may have to spend years fighting for a fair share of assets or worse you could end up with nothing.
Consent order – A legal agreement made amiably by two separating partners (whether married or de facto) on the split of assets, performed through the court. Sometimes known as a more DIY solution. Can be completed without actually going to court.
Binding Financial Order (or Prenuptial agreement, or prenup) – These are also agreements made between couples, often done at the start of a relationship. Each party needs a lawyer to read through the contract and give them legal advice before it can be signed. They can be made at any stage of the relationship, but it is recommended to be done before entering into a union.
Property Settlement in Court– If the separation of assets cannot be settled amiably, the matter will need to go before the court. An application will only be accepted if you can show proof that you have tried to resolve the situation peacefully.
Probate – Settling the finances and assets of a person after they have deceased.
Coming up with a property settlement that is fair is not only an extremely emotional task for all parties involved but is also a highly specialised area of law. There are many factors a court takes into consideration before signing off on property settlements such as assets and liabilities, future needs and contributions of reach partner over the course of the relationship. Other factors include the care arrangements of children, differences in incomes between parties now and in the future (earning capacity) and the age of parties.
Family law does not work on emotions and property settlements must be drafted in a very specific and logical way. There is a fine art to drafting a property settlement that will give you a fair share of the deal now and that will also protect you against future claims by your partner.
As well known advocates – Maspero Legal’s team of family lawyers in Sydney have mastered the art of property settlements, resolving disputes and helping you achieve a just and equitable deal. Our team of family lawyers makes sure to understand your case thoroughly and will provide you with suitable solutions and alternatives accordingly.
At Maspero Legal, there are a number of options we can provide you depending on your situation, which can help you and your Partner come to an amicable agreement without having to go to court. For example, we can prepare consent orders for both your property and children. A consent order is a property settlement that has been approved by a court and made into an official order. You don’t usually need to go to court for consent orders, we do that part for you. Also, when making the orders a Court makes them with a view of it being final so parties don’t need to come back to court in the future about that agreement. If the orders are not followed (breached) this can have serious consequences.
With many years’ experience drafting property settlements for a wide range of clients – be rest assured we will have your best interests on our side. No property settlement is ever the same so getting good legal advice from an experienced Family Lawyer is crucial to ensure you can move on with your life.
