Couple – De facto for 13 months – together 3 years in total


At Divorce Planning we’ve successfully assisted a range of couples achieve a fair divorce or financial separation outcome, without the stress and trauma of engaging divorce lawyers and going to court.

This young couple bought an apartment off the plan, and qualified for the first home owners grant.

He was from overseas and she was from Melbourne. When they separated, he returned to his home country. She didn’t know what to do, so she contacted Divorce Planning.

Inside a couple of hours we provided advice that solved the situation.

After advice from Divorce Planning our client obtained a fair and reasonable valuation for the property and bought her partner out. Our client is now happily living in the apartment, stress free.

Total cost: less than $1000.
