 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
The financial statement and affidavit can make or break your client’s interim property application or interim costs order. As these matters are determined “on the papers”, the evidence contained in the financial statement and affidavit is crucial.  It’s important that you get them right, without being swamped by the technical. This practical session shows you how. It covers:

  • Making sense of the financial jargon before putting pen to paper
  • Drafting to ensure the financial circumstances of both parties are adequately set out in the statement
  • Do the figures in the financial statement make sense in light of what you are asking?
  • Ensuring the evidence explains how the costs order is to be met
  • What supporting documentation do you need regarding financial circumstances
  • Drafting when the financial structure is quite complex – involving, for example, multiple trusts or business entities
 PRESENTER
Our presenter

Peter Magee, Managing Partner – Family Law, Armstrong Legal, Sydney

Peter is a partner of Armstrong Legal and head of the Family Law Division. He has over 15 years’ experience.

In the past, Peter acted in a broad range of high profile cases, including cases involving some of Australia’s most wealthy people in matters involving close to $1 billion. He also acted in cases involving athletes in and out of the International Court of Arbitration for Sport, as well as some of Australia’s largest companies, both publicly listed and privately owned. These companies included major insurers and some household brands.

Even though he has been involved in high profile cases, over the last decade Peter has chosen to specialise in the area of family law. He says: “The reason for this is simple. I want to make a difference in people’s lives.”

His past experience dealing with large cases benefits his family law clients by providing insight into complex and tactical issues. As a result, Peter can often achieve settlements outside Court that may otherwise have not been achievable.
