Financial Agreements are similar to the well-known pre nuptial agreements, but can be signed before, during or after a marriage or de facto relationship.
Financial Agreements are intended to set our how you will divide your property in the event of separation and can also be used to quarantine assets by taking them off the negotiation table. Financial Agreements are intended to avoid the need for the parties to go to court in respect of property matters.
For Financial Agreements to be legally binding, both parties must have signed the agreement and have received independent legal and financial advice before signing.
At Klimek & Wijay, our family lawyers in Perth can assist to ensure that your agreement is legally binding and correctly sets out your intentions so to reduce the likelihood of any dispute in the event of separation.
