    Ep 13: Dollars and sense - understand the family finances before you separate

    Money is a common battleground in separation, but it's not always a fair fight.

    Do you know everything about the shared finances between you and your former partner?

    Were you in charge of the banking? Or did you blindly trust them to pay the bills and make the investments?

    Do you know where all the money is and where it has gone?

    In this latest episode of the Surviving Separation podcast, TGB family law partner Wendy Barry talks about why anyone considering separation must take an interest in the family finances, how to protect yourself from any nasty surprises and why knowledge is, indeed, power.

    Ep 9 “Giving away the farm”: The complexities of agricultural property settlements

    Ep 9 “Giving away the farm”: The complexities of agricultural property settlements

    Determining how assets should be divided between a separating couple is difficult enough, but even more so for those in agriculture, aquaculture, the wine industry and other primary industries.

    Business structures are often complex, climate and market factors have a significant impact, while many couples are often "asset rich yet cash poor” or reliant on their property as their sole source of income.

    For some, the family farm has been passed down through generations and it is not just the separating couple who has an interest in it.

    TGB family and divorce lawyers Melanie Tilmouth and Diana Dichiera talk about the challenges of agricultural property settlements, tips and traps, and what action can be taken to simplify the process.
