DIVORCE and family breakdowns are costing the national economy more than $14 billion a year in government assistance payments and court costs, according to an exclusive News Corp analysis.
Based on the Recent Productivity Commission Report released in September last year, the average cost per party in a property dispute could vary between $10,000 and $150,000 depending on how complex and how quickly the parties choose to settle.
If the matter is fully litigated, the costs could vary between $45,000 per party to $250,000!
- Are you thinking about leaving your spouse/partner?
- Are you in the process of initiating a marital separation?
- Are you caught up in the middle of bitter and protracted divorce proceedings where no one is a winner?
Then you’re in the right place and this is just for you! I have teamed up with Christopher Whitelaw and Dianna Jacobsen, experts in the field of family law disputes, to bring you this FREE E-BOOK:
Managing Family Law Disputes – Three Unique Perspectives – How To Achieve Early Cost-Effective Resolution, Avoid Bitter Litigation and Preserve Your Wealth and Wellbeing
Anyone undergoing a marital separation will find plenty of evidence that there are very few winners, plenty of losers and lots of collateral damage when separated couples decide to take their property division disputes to Court. Some of the many disadvantages of family law disputes going to court include the court process polarising the parties; litigation breeding anger, distrust, suspicion, resentment and frustration; massive legal costs diminishing the net estate; and it now takes 2 years or more, from the date that a party files an Application for Final Orders in the Court, to get to a hearing of the dispute, during which time each party’s share of the net equity is locked up.
Litigation is supposed to be the last resort, not the first. But too many family property disputes are being litigated and at great personal and financial cost to both parties. This need not be the case.
Chris, Dianna and I have joined forces to produce this free E-Book specifically for separating couples like yourself as a guide to help you avoid bitter litigation and achieve early and cost-effective resolution resulting in a fair, equitable, and relatively amicable outcome whilst minimising any emotional fallout.
So this is a MUST READ!
Providing three unique perspectives …
How to Know if a Family Law Property Dispute will Resolve Early
Christopher Whitelaw, lawyer, barrister, and dispute resolution specialist and Principal of the Commercial Disputes Management Centre, addresses the 7 chief factors that will determine whether a family law property dispute will resolve early and conserve most of the available divisible equity, or whether it will spiral into expensive and stressful litigation with a large chunk of the net equity being consumed by legal costs.
How to Minimise the Emotional Fallout
As a former corporate lawyer and now a Master NLP Practitioner and Life Coach, I provide 10 key strategies to assist in managing the emotional fallout which inevitably comes with a relationship break up and division of assets. This includes how to reach a level of emotional and self-awareness and understanding that will allow a potentially sensitive situation to be approached with a clear, non-judgmental perspective, increasing the chances of achieving a mutually satisfactory outcome.
How to Create a Win-Win Outcome
Dianna Jacobsen, a business development adviser and financial strategist and Principal of Shine at Business, focuses on pertinent questions such as who really wins in the fight over money, how to create a WIN-WIN outcome, and how to salvage a business despite this upheaval, as well as working through the practical aspects of separation one-by-one: children, assets, liabilities, superannuation and so forth.
The three of us have come together to offer these different, but overlapping perspectives, in the sincere hope that this information will be widely disseminated and get into the hands of the right people – those who still have a chance to make better choices that will ultimately affect their quality of life, wealth and happiness, and those that they love around them.
And to celebrate the launch of our E-Book, we are giving away the following fantastic prize (total value over $1700) …
