FINANCIAL AGREEMENTS, FAMILY LAW AND DIVORCE

FINANCIAL AGREEMENTS

During a relationship

It’s 2017. Unlike your parents or grandparents generations, it’s likely you’ve already built up valuable assets before you start a relationship or get married.

While relationships aren’t certain, your financial position can be.

We write great financial agreements that protect your assets if you’re in a de facto relationship, are engaged or married.

They work by setting out what will happen to your property, if your relationship ends.

The financial agreements we write are fair. Most commonly, property in your name now, or property you buy in the future in your name, will remain yours in the event of a split (the same goes for your partner and their property), while assets built up together during the relationship are split equally on separation.

A financial agreement means you can:

  • Maintain control over your financial future;
  • Avoid the expense, time and stress of a fight over your property, should your relationship break down without an agreement in place;
  • Protect your property for your kids, by making sure it says with you if you break up with your new partner; and
  • Protect the superannuation you’ve worked hard for.

Financial agreements are now commonplace. That’s because they make great sense.

Here’s what you need to do

We make it easy to get an agreement in place in no time at all. Contact us and we’ll email you an info pack setting out the details we need to get started.

PRICING

Our financial agreements start at $2,650.00 plus GST.

When you’ve separated

Breaking up isn’t easy. Sorting out your legal position can be.

If you and your ex-partner have agreed on how to split your property, a financial agreement is the perfect way to finalise things. And we’re really great at preparing them.

What this means for you:

  • You’re in control, not the Courts;
  • It’s fast – we’ll prepare your agreement quickly for you;
  • It’s affordable and far less expensive than going to Court;
  • It’s the least stressful option;
  • You won’t have to pay stamp duty – it doesn’t apply to property transferred by financial agreements;
  • It’s a healthy way to move forward – especially helpful if you have kids together;
  • It’s a completely binding end to your financial connection with your ex-partner – they won’t be able to ask you for more money down the track and you won’t be liable for their debts in the future;
  • It’s a positive resolution, so you can move forward without the fuss.

We’re very experienced in preparing financial agreements at the end of a marriage or de facto relationship. And we’ll prepare your agreement quickly so your property settlement is finalised asap.

Here’s what you need to do

Your future post break up is closer than you think. Call us today and we’ll email you an info pack. This lets you know the details we need for an agreement, so we can get the ball rolling for you.

PRICING

Our financial agreements on separation start at $3,150.00 plus GST.

PROPERTY SETTLEMENTS

if you’re separated and can’t agree

If you’re separated and can’t agree on the split of your assets, we understand it can be really tough.

That’s why we make sure the legal side of things runs as smoothly as possible, so you can focus your energy on yourself and your family.

We’re not interested in drawing things out unnecessarily or running up excessive legal bills.

We’re interested in getting the best result possible for you, in the shortest time frame, so you leave the relationship in the most secure financial position possible.

We provide straightforward, realistic advice. This means you understand what you’re entitled to and can make the best decisions moving forward.

We’ll work hard to negotiate an agreement to finalise your property split, outside of Court. If we can strike an agreement, we’ll formalise it by preparing a Financial Agreement for you – this is by far the fastest and least expensive way to resolve things.

If an agreement can’t be reached:

  • We’ll file Court documents to have the property split finalised;
  • We’ll fight to make sure you get what you’re entitled to, with the least amount of stress and financial cost possible;
  • We have a great success rate at resolving matters at mediations, even after filing Court documents, meaning you’re in charge of the final outcome not the Court.

We understand this is a difficult time for you. We’re with you every step of the way and we’re there for you whenever you need us.

Here’s what you need to do

Clarity is just a phone call away. Get in touch with our Solicitors today and we’ll explain what you’re entitled to and the best way forward to get it.

DIVORCE

If you’ve been separated for 12 months, you can apply for a divorce. We make this process easy for you.

We’ll explain your options, prepare the documents and organise filing with the Court.

We can even contact your ex-partner for you, to see if they’ll sign a joint application.

It’s no drama if they won’t – you can apply for a divorce alone.  We’ll serve the documents on your ex-partner. There’s no need for you to contact them.

Unless you have children who are under 18, you won’t even need to go to Court.

If you do have to go to Court, we’ll attend with you and speak on your behalf.

We make getting a divorce easy and stress free. We’re sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

PRICING

$800.00 plus GST plus the Court’s fees
