Podcast: Paying Out Your Ex Again, Years Later (It’s Surprisingly Common)

Imagine going through the process of dividing your assets and property after separation, and then being forced to give up even more to your former partner, years later.

Diana Dichiera, family law partner at TGB lawyers, tells Surviving Separation that this situation is surprisingly common.

When couples come to their own property agreements without getting it formalised by the Court, the door is open for one of the parties to make another claim later.

How much later? In a recent Australian case, a claim was made (and upheld by the Court) 26 years later!

In this episode, Diana explains the issue including all the pitfalls and how to avoid them.
