Leaving your partner

Leaving a partner is one of the most daunting things anyone can do. It’s hard enough emotionally, particularly when kids are involved. But if your family’s wealth involves sophisticated investments and business structures, then practical things like understanding how wealthy you are, and getting enough money to move on, look almost impossible.

We’ll help you get the resources you deserve to be able to take back control of your life and move on with confidence.

We understand investment and business structures, self-managed superannuation, tax laws and financial accounts, so we won’t be snowed by your partner’s accountant. We’ll find out where the wealth is buried and ensure you get your fair share.

If it’s time to move on, and start building your new life, call us now on 1300 654 590. You will be put straight through to a great lawyer, who’s seen it all before.
