A financial agreement is an agreement that provides how parties wish to divide their assets in the event of a separation. Financial agreements can be prepared before cohabitation (commonly referred to as a prenuptial agreement), during the relationship, or post-separation.
Financial agreements can be utilised by married and de facto couples.
In the initial conference we can provide you with the relevant advice including the risks associated with such agreements. Following the initial conference we can prepare a financial agreement or review any proposed document that you may provide to advise of the likely effect of the agreement.
A divorce application can be filed with the Court 12 months after the date of your separation.
Divorce applications may be filed with the Court by one party, or filed jointly with the consent of the parties.
We will guide you through all aspects of your divorce including providing you with the relevant advice, preparing the necessary documentation for filing with the Court and attending the Court hearing/s to seek an Order for your divorce.

A family law property settlement involves the finalisation of the division of property when a relationship has irretrievably broken down and the parties have separated.
