One of the most upsetting, emotionally draining and sometimes complicated parts of any relationship breakdown is the issue of dividing assets.
At Hills Family Law Centre, we will provide you with straightforward and realistic legal advice to assist you in clearly understanding your entitlements and your options to achieve a fair property settlement.
Our goal is to resolve your property settlement matters through negotiation, without the need for you to have to go to court. If an agreement is reached between you and your previous partner, we can simply assist you to formalise that agreement.
Our Property Settlement Services include:
- Property Settlement Agreements

Financial Agreements are written documents made with the consent of both parties to a relationship. A Financial Agreement can be made before, during or even after a marriage or de facto relationship has ended.
In short, a Binding Financial Agreement formalises an agreement that you and your partner have reached in relation to the division of your property and financial resources.
Private Child Support Agreements
Child Support Agreements allow parties to formalise their own agreements regarding what they deem to be appropriate maintenance arrangements for their child or children, including the amount of child support to be paid, and how those payments are to be made.
Spousal Maintenance Agreements
Following the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship, one party may be liable to financially maintain the other party for a period of time, provided they have the financial means to do so and in circumstances where the other is unable to sufficiently support themselves.
With respect to any type of Binding Financial Agreement, both parties to the agreement must obtain their own independent legal advice before entering into the agreement.
Seeking counsel from the experienced team at Hills Family Law Centre will assist you to make well informed decisions and ensure that your rights are protected, whilst also giving you the peace of mind that your personal matters have been appropriately managed and resolved.
