The Family Law Act and or the courts that deal with the division of assets between partners in a relationship will ensure that the end result has met with the fundamental principles of justice, fairness and equity. When a spousal relationship has broken down, the distribution of assets and property of the parties can be resolved by agreement, court orders, and if not amicably, then parties can make application to the court for decision.
