The pandemic of COVID-19 has caused a worldwide economic and social crisis, the likes of which have never been experienced nor could its impact have been expected.
However, the earth still turns, and family law property settlements are still progressing.
The Court’s in Australia have adapted to this unprecedented time and remain open. We have seen a shift in attitude both between parties attempting to resolve matters and the Court’s flexibility in assisting parties to come to a resolution.
If you thought of delaying your property settlement, we encourage you to rethink and take that first step as every difficulty can be overcome.
The courts for example have allowed electronic signatures and have established a special COVID-19 Filing procedure to help fast track matters that have seen people experience financial strain due to the downturn in the economy.
Business and Property valuations have still gone ahead with valuations reflecting the assessed values as close to the court hearing dates as possible. We can assist you in providing Valuers with information to best assess “abnormal” business events and adjust valuations accordingly.
