When you divorce, does everything get split 50/50?

 

During a divorce, not everything is split 50/50.

There are no two relationships that are alike. Property settlements differ from one another. If you divorce and settle your property, there are many possibilities that may arise.

The split could be 50-50, 60-40, 70-30, or even 95-5.

You should know that there is no automatic presumption that the divorce will always be 50-50. 

Various factors must be considered when calculating the distribution of assets following the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship under the law.

It is common to receive advice from family or friends with good intentions, often from their own experiences.

This advice has a problem because it usually creates false expectations and is misleading.

One person’s settlement may be different from others you have heard about.

When you want to clarify property settlement issues, talk to Family Lawyers Ringwood. We take property settlement matters seriously to avoid over-expectations.

When I get divorced, do I have to split my inheritance?

A property settlement is often negotiated in court after a divorce. The court evaluates assets, including inheritances, and divides them in a way that is fair to both parties.

The circumstances of your case will determine whether you are required to split your inheritance. In a property settlement, there is no formula or rule that determines who gets what, so it is difficult to predict what will happen.

Coming to an agreement outside of court is the best way to avoid having to divide your inheritance. Family dispute resolution, mediation, or counselling can be used, or it can be done between you and your former spouse without the involvement of a third party. To formalise this decision, you may wish to apply for consent orders or make a binding financial agreement.

It is up to the court to decide how or whether to divide your inheritance if you or your spouse make a court application for financial orders.

Courts consider a variety of factors. An inheritance may be bequeathed to both parties in a will by the testator. In such a case, the inheritance becomes a shared asset and will be divided.

It is important to consider how long the marriage or de facto relationship has been and how long it has been since the inheritance was received. A party’s property settlement entitlements are generally not affected by inheritances received at the beginning of a long relationship.

Inheritance value is also important; if the inheritance is a valuable asset, it may be included in the divisible asset pool so that both parties are treated fairly.

Client Reviews

From the very first phone call I have been extremely impressed with the level of expertise, care and responsiveness. Having had 6 months of delays, poor communications and mistakes with another firm, it was an overwhelming relief to have a conversation with Hadyer, and then Guiseppe. They went out of their way to understand my case, and quickly distilled how they would take this on - both in terms of next steps and overall strategy. Information on their cost structure was simple and transparent. In a time of extreme stress, its great to not only get expertise, but also care and empathy, and realistic advice. Following on from my rubbish experience at a different firm, I did extensive research and spoke to many other firms. It would be very hard to go past Hayder and Guiseppe. You will be in good hands. Completely, whole heartedly recommend! Thankyou!
