You should not delay formalising your property settlement. Why? Because:
- Your assets, debts and super to be divided are calculated at the date you formalise your separation in legal documents NOT separation;
- Your relationship with your ex may change or worsen over time; and
- There are legal time limits to when a person can apply to the Court for property settlement or spousal maintenance orders.
