Separation of Relationship Property

If you are married, in a civil union, or have been in a de facto relationship for three or more years, the Property (Relationships) Act 1976 will apply to you.

The Property (Relationships) Act 1976 is the statute which classifies the assets owned by partners in a relationship. It also governs the way these assets are to be divided between partners when their relationship ends by separation, divorce or death.

Dividing property in accordance with the Property (Relationships) Act can be a difficult process. We can assist you in negotiating with your partner through their lawyer and record your settlement in a binding agreement.

If you need assistance with any of the above issues, or have questions related to the wider areas of relationship property law, give Nichola Christie a call now on 09 379 5828 or email us at lawclerk@rainey.co.nz.
