Deal With Your Financial Agreements Easier
“Some of Australia’s most senior current and former judges are going public, calling out a severe lack of government funding for the Family Court system. They say this means families, particularly children, are suffering because they are subject to court delays and costs.”
ABC News, 31 October 2018
Financial Agreements Mediation
A financial agreement is a written document that sets out how property (assets and liabilities) will be divided between you and your ex-partner.
One of the biggest myths that exist in the context of family law is that following separation when it comes to the arrangements concerning, your financial affairs, you need a lawyer. This is far from the truth.
Commonly Asked Questions
How do we negotiate a financial agreement?
If there is a willingness by you and your ex-partner to negotiate these types of things, you’re in a great position. The best way to make such an agreement is with the help of a family law dispute mediation practice. The risk is that if you try and construct a potential agreement between you and your ex-partner, important things may be missed. Importantly, this agreement also should be approved by a Court. This will make the agreement legally binding.
