Hello

you can do one of two things,

either just refinance and pay her out

or

file consent orders in the family court of WA.

http://www.familycourt.wa.gov.au/_files/Consent%20orders%20kit%20010710.pdf

This is simply an application, do it yourself kit where you can sign an agreement, send it to court and it becomes a court made order.

You can also sign a binding financial agreement as well and have both of you sign it.

I would advise that you should do the consent orders.

For a fee of around $1500 you can get a solicitor to do it so it is legal and will resolve the matter.

Please accept.
