Financial Agreements can be entered into by parties to a relationship prior to, or at the commencement of a relationship, during the relationship, or following a relationship breakdown.
Financial Agreements are a mechanism by which parties can choose to opt out of the Family Law jurisdiction in recording their own agreement. They can deal with issues such as property and financial support including spousal maintenance and can provide parties with a greater level of control.
However, Financial Agreements are complex and must meet a number of strict legal requirements to be valid and enforceable.
Each party to the relationship must obtain independent legal advice about the agreement and specifically advice on the advantages and disadvantages of that party entering into the agreement.
