In June 2000, I purchased a property in australia and my son is the registered owner.A Deed of Trust was signed my him to hold the said property in trust as trustee for me as the beneficiary on 18 October 2000.  His girlfriend wanted to join him in australia but her parents were unable to finance her study. She seeked financial assistance from me for a two year Diploma in Community Service to which I agreed.  Her parents insisted that my son must take her as his lawful wife before her departure to Australia. 

They got married in Malaysia in January 2001. Prior departure to Australia, an agreement was signed between my son and his wife whereby she agreed that in the event of any separation or divorce, she will not make any claims whatsoever towards the said property which is by way of a gift from me to my son.

After completing her 2-year Diploma course, she seeked for a further 3-year Degree in Community Services.  She graduated in December 2005.  During the 5 years of marriage, I have paid for her education expenses including living expenses i.e. fees, books, food, travelling, lodging and clothing.  Her parents did not contribute even a sen.  Instead of feeling grateful, she has become more and more demanding and greedy.  My son has enough of her and wanted to transfer the property back to me before he sort things out with her.

Both my son and his wife are permanent resident of Australia since 2005.  My son and I will be travelling back to Australia next week and has made plans to transfer the property back to me.  I wish to know in the event that they decide to file for separation or divorce, can she claim part of the property later even if it has been transferred back to me.

Before any of us can indulge in the situations,I would like to hear her side of the story.As marriage is 50-50,I don't see any bias in any way and till both sides of the story are heard,it is not wise to give comments.I would like her to post her side of the story if you can make known to her that you are getting advice from this forum.Stand up,be a man,tell her to post her side of the story.
Thank you.

You have little to fear if you are in Australia. Since your son brought the property into the marriage it is substantially his. The matrimonial property act provides for those who bring intot he marriage substantial assets to be able to retain these in the event of separation.

In addition, unless there are children, there is the fact of the Trust Deed as evidence. Furthermore there are hopefully other items of evidence to support your sons claim the spouse (wife) was a minor contributor to the marriage. If you want further help in Australia go to:www.law-on-order.com

they are good and based in Australia although I think the server is now in the Cayman Islands.

Thank you so much for your advice, lawyer. All I want to do is to protect my property because I have two more children studying in Australia. If I lose that property, they have no where to stay.   

Dear 50-50, I post my message here because I need professional advice desperately.  I am not here to accuse or blame my daughter in law.  Whether she post her side of her story here is not important.

Thank you lawyer, may god bless you.

Regardless of where the marriage took place,it is the place at which you decide to pursue the matter that matters most. If they are resident in Australia take the matter up here in Australia. If you need any assistance I shall be happy to guide that. Go to www.law-on-order.com and register there and post. It is handled by lawyers and you don't pay anything for it.

Otherwise please email me on: lombardchristian@netscape.net

Roads are made for a balance flow of traffics,so like the 'yin' and the 'yang'in our bodies.One sided story does more harm than a balance one.No one wants to help you.Sorry my dear.I am sure there are more to say from her.
I can only suspect the following:
1)Who started it-you!!!!!!!!!(maybe your own son)
2)You ALWAYS suspect or ALWAYS think all of her minor mistakes and make a BIggy OR BIG FUSS OF IT
and the3)DRAW a conclusions of her is guilt WITHOUT SECOND THOUGHT OR CHANCE FOR HER
and4)when she explain and explain ,you don't want to hear HER OUT instead you kept bringing out all of your saying of your help OF this and that to her and she is bad and useless and too much dependent on you.And lastly 5)you said without YOU,she has 'NO TODAY'.

So you want all these properties back because you think she is disrespectful and disroyal to you!That is all I can see.

The name says it all. 50 man 50 woman in simple "pondan", neither here nor there. If someone wants to post about "their" problems, they put "their" version forward for assistance. Not the other way around.

If someone wants to obtain relief in court, they put "their" version of events forward and not the other waya round. But you need brains in your head and not your b um to understand these things. 50-50 (also 50 minus 50) is ZERO. Zero toelrance, zero knowledge, zero understanding, zero balance and zero lampa!!
