Customer Question

I have just been made redundant. My wife left me last November. Myself, my 15 year old and 18 year old daughter live in the family house. Wife has asked for a property settlement and the only thing she is interested in is the house. I'm currently looking for work. She does not pay any child care.
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: QLD
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: no
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: i want to know if she can make me have to sell the house

You should apply if you dont there is no obligation on her to pay anything. You cannot backdate it. You can only claim from the date you lodge the application.

File the application ASAP
