Following the breakdown of a relationship or marriage the parties will need to work out how to divide their property and debts.
It is always advisable they reach an agreement and obtain either Consent Orders or a Financial Agreement recording that agreement. If the parties cannot reach an agreement they may need to apply to the Family Law Courts for an order.
In circumstances where a spouse is transferring property to the other spouse pursuant to Consent Orders, a Financial Agreement or an order of the court the spouse acquiring the property will usually not pay stamp duty on the transfer. This can represent a saving of thousands of dollars.
