The temptation to avoid discussing topics such as breaking up and death is understandable.
However it is a sure sign of the strength and determination of your relationship when you can discuss the practical and unromantic aspects of your
relationship openly and honestly.
Drafting a Financial Agreement together whilst the relationship is strong is more likely to ensure a fairer outcome for both parties and allows you to avoid unnecessary bickering later on.
A Financial Agreement makes the painful process of separation less traumatic.
In Western Australia defacto relationships are governed by the Family Court Act 1997 (all other Australian states are governed by the Family Law Act).
These comprehensive Financial (Cohabitation) Agreement Kits have been drafted to comply with the relevant federal or state legislation. They give you all the guidance you need to create a legally binding, protective cohabitation agreement.
Your financial agreement kit includes a comprehensive manual that explains the law as it applies to this agreement. It will show you in simple terms how to thoroughly cover important legal requirements, and how to complete your agreement in detail.
In addition, it contains alternative legal clauses and provisions you can use to personalise your agreement.
Important note: The Family Law Act requires each party to receive independent legal advice before signing the agreement. This prevents either party from arguing that, when signing the agreement, they
did not understand what they were agreeing to.
Our financial agreement review service allows you satify the legal advice component of your agreement at a fraction of the usual cost.
