Litigation Funding for Family Law Property Settlements

by Andrew Lind on 8 July, 16

Property settlement proceedings can be a costly exercise.  It is a common occurrence for a party to property settlement proceedings, to seek , in terms of section 117  of the Family Law Act 1975, that the other party provides litigation funding.  Criteria in relation to an application for litigation funding is confirmed in the cases of Strahan & Strahan (2011 FLC 93-466 at 85,635), Chester vs. Chester 1995 FLC 92-612 per Moss, J) and Chatterjee & Woodby-Chatterjee [2015] Fam CA 947(4 November 2015).
