I just wonder, which order is given more priority? Family law or Property law? According to family law, the asset and property need to be divided with the principles. However, in property law, in cases of separation, the value, including the financial contribution to the property, should be divided equally. After the family law property settlement, do we still need to bringing the 'property settlement' issue or inequity to the magistrates court to challenge under property law? In our case, both the party moved out of the family home and there was no need for property settlement at that time. Is it family law that oversees the division of the property, or property law?
