How do Initial Financial Contributions Affect a Property Settlement?

In the 2019 case of Jabour v Jabour, the husband acquired a part interest in two blocks of land prior to marrying the wife. At the time of the trial the rezoned land was valued at $10,350,000 and constituted the majority of the value of the asset pool. The trial judge ordered that the husband receive 66% of the non-superannuation assets and the wife 34% taking into account the husband’s initial financial contributions.
