Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What property can the court deal with?

Some of the properties that the court can deal with may include:

  • property purchased during the marriage;
  • property owned by the parties before the marriage;
  • assets built up in a business;
  • gifts and inheritances received by either party;
  • superannuation;
  • redundancy;
  • compensation.

When talking about property in relation to trusts or a company, the court may treat such property as belonging to one of the parties if it appears that they have benefitted from the ownership of the trust or company.
