Hi. I have just recently split up with my partner of nearly 4 years (6weeks ago) I'm not sure if I'm getting the raw end of the stick ( separation). We have built two houses while together, one built for $237,000 (now worth $280-300k) and one built for $357,000 (now worth $580-600k) Using my name, I built the first house and using her name she built the second with a lot of my input, I also wired the house completely with a top of the range communications package worth around the $5-7k range. I was charged only $800 for the materials. My home is tenanted so I have been left out of a home. She is taking her house, all the furniture and businesses and leaving me with almost nothing to go on. I have been on the verge of mental break down because of our break up and that she is already sleeping with someone else that I have consequently lost my job. During our time together, we both worked on her business ideas and I helped with implementing them into action, we accumulated around $30,000 worth of assets together. While living in the first house, I made the mortgage repayments and she saved up her deposit for the second house. Can anyone offer help for a fair property settlement? My mind is such a mess with all this going on.
