Agreement for a de facto Couple that Intends to Marry

This is a combined agreement for couples who are living together and intend to get married. It is made under two sections of the Family Law Act / Family Court Act. This is a new type of agreement that has become possible due to a recent court case – see the history here.

A financial agreement is used when a couple wants to control the distribution of assets in the event of a separation instead of leaving it up to the courts.

You can make a financial agreement that deals with all financial matters or you can choose to deal with a single asset like a home, business or inheritance.

A financial gives you peace of mind that your assets are protected. It allows you to stipulate and quarantine particular assets or financial resources from claim should the relationship break down.

By “isolating” those assets, each party is able to leave the relationship, should the need arise, with the property they brought in. Putting your agreement in writing puts a stop to the niggling doubts and “what if?” questions.

This type of legal arrangement is quite common, it takes care of the practical matters and is generally no more difficult than a Will to draft.

There are 2 parts to making a financial Agreement

  2. The Required Legal Advice (usually $)
We can show you how to complete your agreement and get the legal advice for just $2387 for both parties – without stress, fuss or engaging combative lawyers.

About the Required Legal Advice

Under section 90G for married couples, or section 90UJ for de facto couples, parties to a financial agreement must receive independent  legal advice before they execute their agreement.  Independent meaning each party cannot use the same lawyer.

This is to ensure that the parties understand:

a)    the advantages and disadvantages of making the agreement; and

b)    what rights they give up, including the right to have a court decide on matters that are dealt with in the agreement.

So by getting proper legal advice, independent of the other party, the Act makes it near impossible to argue that you didn’t know what you were signing.  The lawyers will also make inquiry that the parties are entering the agreement of their own free will and that neither is under pressure or duress to sign the agreement.

Our combined defacto prenup agreement kit deals with all the usual issues your clients you may face when dividing financial resources, such as ownership of real estate, personal property (cars, furniture, etc), superannuation entitlements, shares, debt, spousal maintenance etc.

Which State do you live in?
