One of the really common questions people ask is “What am I entitled to?”
The process of a property settlement can at times be less strenuous than you think. In fact, only about 5% of all property settlements end up before a Judge.
The key to all of this is trying to strike an agreement with your ex-partner as early as you possibly can in relation to property. It’s not uncommon for plenty of couples to sought their property out without even having to file the application for a property settlement.
It’s like everything else in family law, if you’re able to come to an agreement on the things that matter, your children and your property, then you will significantly minimise all the stress, emotion and financial outlays that will most certainly come your way. Now of course there are exceptions, when one party because of the unwillingness of the other party to talk, have to invariably take these matters further than they had hoped.
