If I separate, is there a time limit to make a claim for a property settlement?

Yes, the deadline for issuing a property (or maintenance) application is 12 months for married parties after a Divorce Order has taken effect (except by leave of the Court or the agreement of the other party).  A party to a de facto relationships may apply for a property (and maintenance Order) only if the Application is made within 2 years after the end of the relationship.  If you are outside these timelines, we recommend you obtain legal advice.
