Who gets what in a divorce in Australia?

In property settlement proceedings, the court may make such order as it considers appropriate. However, the court shall not make an order unless it is satisfied that, in all the circumstances, it is just and equitable to make the order. In considering what order to make the court will take into account a number of matters. Those are set out in the Family Law Act. We have written a summary of those matters and the approach that the court takes in an article for your information.
