The Illusion Of ‘Exclusion’ In Property Settlement Cases

The Full Court of the Family Court of Australia has confirmed that all property will be considered when finalising property matters between parties upon marriage breakdown. Significantly, this also includes property inherited years after separation. The ruling has established that property acquired post-separation will not be ‘excluded’ from consideration.

Co-Parenting – Parents Who Sabotage Relationships Between Their Children And The Other Parent

Many parenting Orders contain provisions seeking to restrain parents from denigrating each other in front of their children or allowing other individuals to do so. These clauses reinforce the need for fostering healthy relationships between parents and children post family separation. While some parents find it difficult, most understand and appreciate the importance of facilitating and supporting a relationship between the child and the other parent. Unfortunately, some parents find it difficult, if not impossible, to foster positive relationships between their ex-partner and their children.
