We Needed Help with Property Division

Martha Farmer Copeland, AttorneyWhen my ex and I decided to get a divorce, I knew that it was going to be pretty nasty. We don’t have kids, but we do have a lot of property. He was willing to let me keep the house, but he wanted to keep all of the other properties. We have 15 rental properties, and it was our only source of income. His argument was that he had invested the initial amount of money, so he deserved all of it. I got him to agree to use family lawyers on the gold coast to mediate our case.

Neither one of us have a lot of extra money, and I knew that what little we did have would be given to lawyers if this went to court. He realized this too, and we agreed to let mediators handle it. This was an easy enough decision because of the types of people who handle the mediation.
