    I'm looking at the DIY Consent Orders kit and there's a whole section on superannuation that has to be filled in if either partner has a "superannuation interest". What does that mean?

    We have agreed not to split superannuation in our property settlement. Does that mean neither of us have a superannuation interest and we can leave that section blank? I don't want to mess about getting valuations if I don't have to.

    The rest of it is pretty simple. One house, two cars, one managed fund, and an agreed 60/40 split.

    Hi Uncertain, I would assume so.

    I believe in this situation a "Superannuation Interest" would basically refer to a super fund that belongs to you or a fund to which you have a single beneficial interest. So while technically you might need to answer yes to those sections, I would either leave blank or strike through or note as N/A.
