Free Webinar for Accountants “De facto Breakups and Money”

It’s one of the most misunderstood concepts in Family Law – “What is a de facto relationship?” It is rarely simple and the treatment of property in de facto relationships has also always been a complex area.

To address the common questions that accountants are likely to get from clients, we have created a new 1 hour webinar “De Facto Breakups and Money”. This presentation provides practical and easy-to-understand answers.

WHEN: 1-2pm, Tuesday, 24 August 2021. Registration link is coming soon, stay tuned.

Free Webinar for Accountants “Determining Percentage Entitlements in Property Settlement”

There is no 50%/50% presumption or (even) starting point when it comes to how property is divided between divorcing couples. The percentage is determined by looking at the “contributions” each party has made. This is an inexact science and will vary for every couple.

This webinar will look at:

– The main categories of contribution and particularly how “financial and non-financial contributions” are treated.

– What is “future needs” and how is it treated?

– The treatment of gifts, inheritances, personal injury payments, redundancy payments and other common questions.

This presentation will provide easy to understand information and practical tips to demystify this area of family law, and will help you better help your clients.

WHEN: 1-2pm, Tuesday, 31 August 2021. Registration link is coming soon, stay tuned.

Client Testimonials

Your team’s communication with me was exceptional, I knew exactly what was happening.

The professionalism and reliability delivered by Amy Honan was fantastic. I had an urgent matter around my property sale and Amy offered to provide assistance over a weekend if I required it – that’s above and beyond!

Amy, thanks very much to you and your team. Throughout my dealings with MLFL I have been continually impressed with your level of professionalism and, in particular, your understanding of circumstances and the articulate way you conduct yourself. I was completely satisfied with today’s outcome and without your experience and expertise in family law I doubt that the result would have been achieved.
M.R., West End
I always felt that the service provided by Michael Lynch Family Lawyers was of a high standard. Each time, after appointments I came away feeling secure. Keep doing what you are and maintain the ‘family feel’ that permeates your services.
