Financial Agreements can apply to both de facto relationships and marriages, and can be completed before, during or after the marriage or de facto relationship.
Financial Agreements are commonly used post separation as a means to reaching a property settlement. There are two options to formalise a property settlement, a Financial Agreement and Consent Orders.
Consent orders are more commonly used, but Financial Agreements are generally used in circumstances where the parties prefer not to have to submit papers to the Family Court . For Financial Agreements to be effective both parties need to receive independent legal advice regarding the agreement.
