Married or de facto couples (including same-sex couples) have a right to make Financial Agreements about the allocation of property (including property settlement, maintenance and superannuation splitting) previous to the commencement of, during and in the event of separation in relation to a relationship / marriage / cohabitation arrangement. These agreements are legally binding. A Binding Financial Agreement outlines the parties’ agreement as to their financial arrangements and contributions and are intended to minimise future litigation and dispute.

Skill and expertise is required in relation to the drafting of a Financial Agreement, in particular in relation to the provision of advice. We can advise on the benefits of such agreements and draft a document which addresses financial arrangements (including those which involve complex matters) for a range of circumstances and clients.
