Whether you are going through a matrimonial or defacto relationship breakdown, it is imperative that where division of property/assets is involved, you receive specialised family law advice as to your entitlements. Receiving and acting on incorrect legal advice may result in negative long term effects as to your quality of life.
At Oner Family Law we are specialists in dealing with complicated business structures which quite often involve third parties. For example, it is not unusual to have your parents or in-laws involved as business partners in a family business. Another situation may arise where your in-laws control a family trust of which your former partner is a beneficiary. When a relationship breaks down in such a situation, you need to make sure that your lawyer is very familiar with the commercial law issues surrounding complex business structures/trusts.
Whatever the situation, we can help, and work in conjunction with highly experienced accountants where necessary.
Just as important, documenting a property settlement reached by agreement is crucial. There have been many examples of former partners (usually those who resolve the division of their assets amicably between them without a lawyer), either documenting agreements incorrectly, or not at all, which later causes enormous problems where the former partners have a falling out and want to renege on the original agreement reached.
Oner Family Law can ensure that your property settlement agreement is documented correctly, so that it is legally binding.
