First timer...going through a separation and my ex wants half of everything. I need to know a few things regarding property settlement: I received 2 payments for disability from injuries caused at work when I was working. It is all still in the bank in a term deposit. Does she have any claim to it? We have a new car and still owe $25000 on it. She left the car with me which I am paying off and she wants me to pay her for half of it. Does she get half the debt? She wants half the house...every penny I made went to improve the house while she spent her income on make up jewelry,shoes and clothes. And last, I own a small business - sole trader. Can she claim any of the business? She has contributed nothing to the business. Any help appreciated.
