Financial Agreements can be entered into at any stage of a relationship – prior to moving in together or getting married, during a marriage of defacto relationship, or after separation.

Financial Agreements

 

These Agreements require each party (even if they are still happily together) to get independent legal advice before entering into the Agreement and making it binding.

Often, a Financial Agreement, or Prenuptial Agreement can be worthwhile when one party has significant assets, or a capacity to earn, is likely to receive an inheritance, or wishes to protect any current or future assets for their children.

Post separation Financial Agreements can be of assistance where parties are prepared to forego claims for spousal maintenance as part of their property settlement.
