Abstract:

The way property is divided on divorce is a key issue for many families, and one that has attracted considerable debate over the past two decades. Yet despite the importance of property division to parties negotiating the divorce transition it has been more than a decade since broad-based empirical research on this issue has been conducted in Australia (i.e., Settling Up, McDonald, 1986a). To address this gap in the research, data from the Australian Divorce Transitions Project are analysed to provide an insight into the way in which women and men are dividing their property when they divorce. The data suggest that little has changed since the publication of Settling Up in the way matrimonial property is divided. The future financial needs of the former spouse may, however, have been overlooked by parties when allocating property on divorce - a shortfall that, in part, reflects the constraints imposed by the limited wealth available to a large minority of couples on separation.
