Financial Settlement

One of the biggest concerns after a relationship breakdown is what to do with your joint assets. It’s essential to engage a good family lawyer with experience in financial settlements.

This can become even more complicated if you also have a business or trust, or if third parties are involved such as members of your extended family.

Once a financial agreement is reached, De Saxe O’Neill can finalise all documentation and file the settlement in the Family Court.

So if you’re looking for help and advice from skilled divorce financial settlement lawyers on the Northern Beaches, Sydney, then get in touch with De Saxe O’Neill today.


Financial settlement services which we offer include:

Property Settlements

Financial settlement after divorce or separation can get messy when it comes to division of property. We help ease the pain of this process by running everything from the beginning, including negotiating the financial settlement.

Once the divorce financial settlement is agreed, we finalise all documentation with you and file with the Family Court so it becomes a binding court order.

Spousal maintenance

Whether you are in a marriage or de facto relationship, issues around ongoing financial support and loss of access to income can arise. We can give you advice on the ongoing financial contributions you may have to make towards your former spouse, or what you can expect to receive.


If a negotiated settlement cannot be reached, De Saxe O’Neill’s financial settlement lawyers are skilled professional litigators who know the Family Court processes inside out. We are well-versed in strategies required to achieve the best outcome.
