Examples of Separate Property cases undertaken
Investment property funded with $1m from separate property: Claimed by the "ex" as relationship property; our financial tracing of 30+ bank accounts showed where the funds came from. The judge indicated a 75:25 split was more likely; the parties settled during a settlement conference on that basis; saving our client $250,000.
Lifestyle block: The "ex" claimed 100% relationship property. We proved our client funded it from separate property, and the claim was reduced to the homestead only; saving $200,000.
Separate business subject to vexatious relationship claims: Client retained the business as separate property. When the financial facts were presented, the ex's claims were disproved and a court case avoided; saving $50,000.
