What happens to my property settlement if I reconcile with my partner after I have finalised my property settlement?

The court found in Bourke [No 2] which was approved in McCabe [1995], that if parties reconcile their relationship after formalising their property settlement, then the parties’ reconciliation and actions during such reconciliation, can be considered by the court as the parties consenting to having their previous property orders being set aside.

This therefore can open the door to fresh orders being made in the event of further separation.
