Even those who are not party to a marriage or a de facto relationship may be impacted financially by a relationship breakdown
At times, without even realising it both of the parties to a separation may end up impacting other people with whom they have a business relationship or family members whom they may be financially intertwined with.
We advise and have acted for many third parties to family law disputes, such as companies, trusts, business partners and creditors or family members and typically, adult children, siblings and parents, of those going through a separation, about their rights.
The matters we assist with are varied – from protection or recovery of assets to the disclosure of documents or answering a subpoena.
Where third parties have financial or commercial interests that are intertwined with the separating couple, we advise them how to best navigate these issues, so as to ensure that their interests are not prejudiced.
