 Recorded Webinar: Family Law Property Settlements and the Top End of Town

Date: Monday 12th September 2022
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

Rising property values, globalisation of commerce, dual family income, inheritance and investment growth have seen the wealth of Australians rise considerably over the last few decades, and none more so than those at the top of the tree. This session will explore how the family courts are viewing property adjustment in very wealthy family separations, including:

  • What does “just and equitable” mean in the context of wealthy families?
  • Is there a presumption of equality of contribution as a starting point in property adjustments in high wealth cases?
  • Court treatment of special contributions in high wealth cases
  • How far and to what extent should the court examine family wealth behind the parties?
  • Are family trusts doing their job in protecting assets?
  • Recent cases including Balken & Vyner [2020] FamCA 955; Rigby & Kingston (No 4) [2021] Fam Ca 501
