Reach a fair financial settlement with your ex-partner.

Are you at the end of your relationship, and wanting to gain financial independence?

Andreyev Lawyers will help you enter a property settlement, so you can sever financial ties with your former partner, and move on with your new life.

We’ll ensure you get your fair share.

Understand what your financial future will look like.

Let us handle the difficult discussions with your former partner.

Avoid leaving any costly loose ends.

Secure a solid financial base on which to build your new life.

Do you know how much wealth you have, where your wealth is, and what share you are entitled to?

Andreyev Lawyers will help get the information you need to negotiate a fair property settlement.

We will objectively assess the extent of your family’s wealth, and investigate how your wealth is structured (in terms who owns what, and where).

We will then provide you with clear guidance as to what you are entitled to, and an effective strategy to make it happen.

Having efficiently extracted your fair-share of your family’s finances, you will be able to move forward and take full financial control of your new life.


How long is your property settlement going to take? Where do you start?

You’ve left your partner, but you haven’t yet split-up your finances.

Reaching a successful property settlement requires you to work out how big your family’s ‘financial pot’ is, and what share you’re rightfully entitled to.

You then need to successfully negotiate for your share, and formalise a legally binding settlement.

Finally, you must step through the legal hurdles to move the assets and liabilities to where you have agreed.

Will you get what you are entitled to? Will you be left with enough money to maintain yourself and fund your new life? You want to avoid a drawn-out and expensive process. You want to move on.

Everyone is entitled to their financial freedom. You should end up with enough to move on and build a better life.

No matter how amicable things may appear; your partner will be looking to maximise their share of the pot.

You only get one shot at setting yourself up for financial independence.

If you don’t have a very clear picture of your family’s finances, you will be negotiating with one hand tied behind your back.

Every day you delay in taking decisive action is a day of lost financial freedom. Don’t remain stuck in a relationship that is stifling you emotionally, just because you are not sure whether you can afford to leave.

Take action now, and move on, on your terms.

Thank you to Andreyev Lawyers for bringing my property settlement to an end.

It’s been a complex and often arduous process but I greatly valued your technical expertise and particularly appreciated your sympathetic approach.

I gladly recommend your services to others.

My life as I knew it was completely turned upside. An interstate friend gave me Andreyev Lawyers’ name. I will be forever grateful that I called Andreyev Lawyers.

Not only did she speak to me about my case for the first time literally days before Christmas, I instantly felt at ease with their professionalism and knowledge.

I meet with them a few weeks later in Andreyev Lawyers Adelaide office. I brought with me a full folder of documentation prepared by my previous representation. This did not deter them. They simply took it all in their stride and proposed a plan in our very first meeting of what to do moving forward. For the first time in a long time I felt optimistic about what might lie ahead.

The next 11 months would see these remarkable people represent me through court hearings, correspondence and negotiation via the phone and email. Not only did I have esteemed representation, they made me feel at ease and informed me every step of the way of this long and draining process. Even when I thought things look bleak, they were solid as a rock and confident in moving forward. Every question I had was answered. Any concern I had quickly disappeared with such efficiency and expertise regarding parenting and property. No matter what I knew they had my back.

The outcome was more than I could have ever hoped. My thanks Andreyev Lawyers.
