A de facto agreement allows a couple to avoid court by settling how their property should be divided in the event of a relationship breakdown.
By making a cohabitation or de facto agreement , you can quarantine certain assets from litigation during a property settlement. This can help you to feel more secure in the relationship particularly if one partner has significant assets and the other does not.
Your financial agreement allows you to decide what you think would be a fair and equitable distribution of property in the event of separation instead of leaving it up to the courts.
You can choose to deal with all of your financial interest now or you may choose to deal with a single asset like a family farm, a business or an inheritance.
Financial agreements can comfort and reassure people living in or entering into de facto relationships. They are recognised and enforceable under Part VIIIAB of the Family Law Act and can save you time, money and a lot of heartaches.
