Mediation of Property Disputes
Splitting property after separation or divorce is a daunting and stressful time for both parties and in times like these, you might need to resolve property disputes among one another. It is common that differences of opinion emerge as to who contributed more to the property pool as is the fear of potentially not having enough for the future.
This can be particularly stressful for those approaching their latter years. Parties also need to be mindful of the effects of property division on the child and things like the family home.
Some of the assets that are commonly negotiated in the mediation process includes the family home, investment properties, shares, cash, savings, superannuation, cars, motorcycles, boats, intellectual property, businesses and their assets, trust property and much more. The mediator will assist the parties towards agreeing what is considered as part of the property pool and will work with the parties towards a mutually agreeable outcome.
Assets aside, parties also need to negotiate accrued or expected debts. Some liabilities that are common in family mediation include mortgages, credit card debt, store cards, outstanding personal loans, private loans, buy now pay later debts, car loans, boat loans, motorcycle loans and loans between family members.
