A Financial Agreement is a contract entered into by you and your partner or spouse that documents how you wish to deal with your assets and liabilities, or spousal maintenance.
A Financial Agreement can be entered into at varying stages of your relationship, including:
- Before you move in together;
- Before you get married;
- During your marriage (including while you are separated); and
- After you have been divorced.
Unlike consent orders, a Financial Agreement does not involve the Court during the ‘sign off’ stage, but can be enforced through the Court at a later time if necessary.
Both you and your partner are required to obtain your own, independent legal advice before entering into a Financial Agreement. Ross Hirst and his team are specialists in preparing and advising clients on Financial Agreements, and are experienced in ensuring that the strict requirements of Family Law Act are met.
