Have Any Questions?

What is a financial agreement?

Before, during and after a marriage or de-facto relationship, a financial agreement can be drawn up between parties that direct the parties as to how property is to be apportioned in
the event of separation. Often referred to as a ‘binding financial agreement’, it can only be binding if the strict requirements pursuant to the Family Law Act are followed. Do you have a query as to whether your agreement is binding? Contact us now.

What happens to jointly owned assets at death?

If two or more people own property as joint tenants when one of them dies, the property will pass directly to the survivor. If property is held as “tenants in common” it will pass according to the terms of the deceased’s will. This often applies with real estate.

 

When can I get divorced?

For you to divorce from your spouse, you must be married for at least 2 years and have been separated for 1 year. If you meet this criterion, an application can be made to the Family Law Court. There are possible exceptions to the 2 year marriage requirement and separation for which we can advise you on. We can assist with any divorce related inquiry.
