Financial Settlement

Financial Agreements can be entered into by parties at any stage during their relationship in the hopes of reaching a financial settlement. It can be prior to living together, it can be whilst they are living together, or it can be after separation and applies to both de facto and married couples. Most people understand Financial Agreements to be in the form of a Prenuptial Agreement however we also utilise them to formalise financial arrangements on a final basis after separation, including ending spousal maintenance obligations. They are a useful tool that attracts all the benefits of an Order in terms of stamp duty exemptions, capital gains tax rollover relief and also allows us to work more pro-actively with your accountant and your financial advisor in reaching a resolution.

We take a collaborative and consultative approach to the application of our advice and work with a wide range of highly accomplished experts to ensure a broad view of the matter.
