Question - my girlfriend walks out on me after living together for over 2 years (in Victoria we are considered de facto) and thinks she is entitled to half of my share portfolio. Is this really true? Even though I built it up myself through good trades. Hardly seems fair given that she had no input in the decisions that I made and didn't have any cash interest in the outlay. Also, surely it would be after CGT and not value at date of split? Doing a bit of reading, the family court considers who made the various contributions, but has anyone had any real life stories to share in relation to this kind of property settlement on separation?? Any opinions on whether I will have to give half of it up? I'm getting legal advice but would appreciate any input.
