Vardags — when you need to win

What are divorce laws like in Australia?

The courts in Australia have a broad remit to divide and distribute assets between the parties. The court will consider all contributions made during the marriage, including non-financial efforts such as keeping the house or raising children, though there is no starting point in favour of equality.

Given the wide discretion which the Australian court has, and the influence of various strands of case law, it is hard to predict how assets will be divide in anything other than broad-brush terms. It is best to seek specialist legal advice if you think that your divorce might proceed in Australia.
