Why do you have to get Legal Advice?

Back in 2000, when financial agreements were introduced, the lawmakers were responding to a need to lessen the load on the Family Court System. 

They recognised that couples often know what they want to achieve with a binding contract, but there must be a legal safety net to ensure equality in the bargaining power of the partners.

This safety net is the mandatory legal advice

The Legal advice is your safety net

The Legal Advice acts as a Safety Net and ensures the strength of your agreement.

Essentially both partners are required to have a conversation with a lawyer about their agreement to make sure that they each understand:

  •  The effect that signing the Financial Agreement will have on their rights; and 
  •  The advantages and disadvantages of making the agreement

After the consultation, their lawyer is required to issue them with a Certificate of Legal Advice. The parties can sign the agreement and move on with their lives confident that their financial resources are protected.

Once you've completed your draft agreement ($97), you and your partner can obtain the Legal Advice from qualified family law specialists at a low fixed price of $1790 for both parties (unless you have a very complex situation).
