When relationships end, the emotional battles can be hard enough without adding financial arguments into the mix. Working out who should live with who, who should get what and how much each of you contributed, along with what you should all be entitled to doesn’t help to heal the wounds.
Ideally you want to stay away from the court system. Apart from extra stress, time and money involved, settling out of court means everyone knows exactly what is happening, where going to court means there is the uncertainty of waiting for a judicial officer to decide for you.
Plus, according to the Attorney-General, there are more than 20,000 family law matters currently awaiting resolution before the courts, with the median time taken to reach trial in the Family Court sitting at 17 months.
