Knowing your worth.
Preston & Associates family lawyers offer expert legal advice to ensure our clients financial agreement reflects their value.
Financial agreements can be entered into pre-marriage or pre-cohabitation, during a marriage or relationship and following the breakdown of the relationship or marriage.
Parties in a relationship usually enter into financial agreements when they desire to have control and certainty over what happens to their assets if they separate.
Financial agreements are commonly considered where people are entering a second relationship or marriage. These agreements are also considered when there is a desire to quarantine an inheritance or gift from family. Financial agreements are also a very useful tool in family businesses and succession planning.
Thinking about entering an agreement?
Our expert legal advice comes from knowledge and experience with all financial agreements types.
We understand the decision to enter into a financial agreement is not to be taken lightly.
Specifically, that as a consequence of entering into a legally binding financial agreement, parties willingly opt out of the court’s jurisdiction and will not be able to seek the assistance of the court to pursue property settlement entitlements that may generally apply pursuant to the Family Law Act.
If you are considering such an agreement, it is critical to obtain expert family law advice, as the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia will set an agreement aside that does not comply with the Family Law Act.
