Things to consider
When you apply for a property settlement after divorce or separation, you will need to disclose your assets and liabilities. The court will also usually consider the following factors when determining a property settlement:
- the financial contributions of both parties to the assets of the relationship
- the non-financial contributions of both parties to the relationship
- the contribution of both parties as a homemaker and/or parent
- the future needs of both parties
