The Final Step

Make your Financial Agreement legally binding and make a fresh start on life.

Homepage > Legal Support Service

Independent legal advice is the mandatory last step towards financial freedom and control.

Under the Family Law Act your financial agreement does not become binding until:

  • both parties have received independent legal advice before signing the agreement

AND

  • there is a certificate from each lawyer that the advice has been provided.

After which the financial agreement is legally binding and must be adhered to. All that’s left is for you both to execute the agreed terms and start the next chapter in your life.

Our Legal Support Service makes that happen. Simple, easy and at a competitive fixed price $ which provides legal advice for both parties (unless your situation is particularly complex).

Was great to find a product that allowed us to mutually agree a financial agreement without all the dramas that we had until we came across RP Emery. They were fantastic in supporting us with answers to our questions and the legal advice we received from the appointed lawyers was first class without the perceived pressures that I was expecting.

How the Legal Support Service works

1

Purchase the Legal Support Service

If your Financial Agreement fits the fixed price parameters, we send you a link and you purchase the package.

2

Fine Tune the Document

We then get your Financial Agreement “lawyer-ready” with you at no extra charge.

To ensure it accurately reflects your situation and the intentions of both parties.

It fast-tracks the mandatory legal advice and is how we save you thousands of dollars in legal fees.

3

Allocation of Lawyers

When your Financial Agreement is ready we allocate each of you a lawyer from our select panel of expert Family Lawyers.

4

Talk with your Lawyer

Your lawyer is also notified and together you book a time to go through the Agreement; to make any minor adjustments, and ensure you understand all the implications of signing the Agreement before you put pen to paper.

5

Receive your Written Advice

Once you have met with your lawyer and received your legal advice they will send you:
* a finalised version of the Agreement,
* your letter of advice, and
* the Certificate of Independent Advice.

6

Sign the Agreement

Both parties sign one agreement in front of a witness. One keeps the original, the other keeps a copy

And that is it.

Parcel out the assets as agreed, and you are financially free of each other.

Note that the Legal Support Service is only available to people who have bought and completed the Financial Agreement Kit.

Important note about your lawyers

They understand that both of you have spent a lot of time to arrive at a mutually acceptable Agreement. Their role is to advise you if signing this agreement is to your advantage or to your disadvantage. Is it a good outcome for you?

They are not paid to negotiate on your behalf, rather it is to guide you to an informed decision; ensuring your consent to this Agreement is “fully informed”.

The service provided by RP Emery was amazing, as was the appointment of our two separate Solicitors. Both gave us individual advice to suit our individual needs which led to a finally agreed Financial Agreement being prepared and signed off. The instructions given by all parties was excellent and they made sure we understood each clause of the agreement we were signing. The cost savings were substantial and we could not have asked for better. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED.
