Financial agreements can be used by couples at any stage of a personal relationship – married or de facto, before, during or after. People use Financial agreements to document a property settlement in the case of a separating couple or to set out how they wish financial matters to be dealt with in the event of relationship breakdown
We spoke to some of our recent customers to learn about their experiences with using our financial agreement kits and Legal Review Package (formerly known as Document Review Service).
