Special Skills- High Net Worth Property -Family Law
In the recent case of Hoffman and Hoffman, the Family Court of Australia consider the idea of “special skills“, when a husband appealed a decision where after 36 years of cohabitation and an asset pool of about $10,000,000, he received 50%. The Husband argued that had special skills and entrepreneurial flair and for this reason the asset pool was as large as it was. The Court did not agree with the Husband and the Husband’s appeal was dismissed.
