    If a property settlement were to be determined by the court, superannuation earned by both parties throughout the duration of the marriage would be considered as part of the joint asset pool.

    However, parties must first attempt family dispute resolution to try and reach agreement about a property settlement before the court can be asked to intervene. There is a 12 month time limit after a divorce is finalised for either party to apply to the court for a property settlement.

    Hope this helps.
