Mosaic Settlements are here to answer questions that frequently come up regarding the division of property after divorce
Q: What happens to the property?
A: When a marriage ends in divorce, the couple’s property is typically sold, and the proceeds of the sale are then split between the two parties.
Q: What if I want to keep the family home?
A: Mosaic Settlements assists in the transfer of ownership to a single party if they wish to retain ownership of the family home. We will act upon the Orders set out in your Court Order or Binding Financial Agreement which will stipulate, who is to retain the property, who is to pay the fees and if any payments are due to relevant parties. We are unable to prepare Court Orders, you will need to engage with a Family Lawyer to assist in this regard or go direct via the Family Court of WA.
Q: Why is it called a ‘Consent Order’ or ‘Court Order’?
A: The word ‘Consent Order’ or ‘Court Order’ refers to a document that a family lawyer drafts setting out the terms of the separation. The documents are lodged with the Family Court and then once finalised they are sealed and ready to be used to facilitate the transfer of property.
