Family and Relationship property
We profess a vast degree of ability and experience in order to assist you in all legal requirements arising from your personal relationships. We provide a timely, sensitive and professional approach in matters which often arise from relationship breakdowns including property transfers, trusts, estate planning and other issues as they arise.
We can assist you in the following areas:
- Divorce (Dissolution of Marriage)
- Separation and Relationship Property Agreements, Contracting-out Agreements pursuant to Property (Relationships) Act
- Family Trust
Provided the necessary information and documentation can be supplied, we can efficiently prepare and arrange for service of divorce applications whether the parties are based in New Zealand or overseas. The only ground for obtaining an order of dissolution of marriage (divorce) in New Zealand is for a husband and wife to be separated for a period of two years.
We recommend you to consider entering into a relationship property agreement if you own any property at the time of commencing a relationship. Such agreement will set out the manner in which the property is to be divided with your spouse or partner in event of separation or death.
