When you marry someone, or are involved in a de facto relationship, there are often shared finances. While this is a practical step, and important aspect of the formation of your family unit, joint finances require a lot of unravelling when the relationship falls apart. In many cases, you need a financial lawyer to ensure that you receive a fair proportion of your joint assets, in line with Australian legislation. At Boyce Family Law & Mediation, our financial lawyers in Sydney assist with financial settlements in the event of a relationship breakdown. We can provide assistance by way of mediation, legally-assisted negotiation and, if required, litigation. 

Financial lawyers who look after your best interests

The end of a serious relationship or marriage usually means there is a need to divide property. In addition to dividing the physical property you share, you need to address monetary assets as well as debts and liabilities.

In many cases, the couples we represent are able to come to an agreement over who gets what. They just require some guidance and support to make those agreements happen. With our financial lawyers in Sydney, you can create a binding financial agreement based on your past contributions, your needs, and whether you are caring for any children of the relationship. At Boyce Family Law & Mediation, we will fiercely guard your best interests to help you achieve the financial settlement you deserve.

This approach comes with the benefit of speedy results and significantly lower costs than attending court, allowing you to return to financial stability as soon as possible.

In some cases, your financial lawyer may decide that you would benefit from lawyer-assisted negotiation or litigation. Sometimes this is necessary due to the complexity of the proceedings, such as when there are businesses, complex trust structures and offshore accounts involved. Our skilled team can reach out to private investigators, business valuers and forensic accountants to carry out additional investigation where necessary.
