Reaching Financial Agreements
Financial Agreements can be entered into by parties at any stage during their relationship. 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 a 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 attract all the benefits of an Order in terms of stamp duty exemptions, capital gains tax roll over relief and also allow us to work more pro-actively with your accountant and your financial advisor in reaching a resolution.
