Financial Agreements

Binding financial agreements – the basics

Financial agreements include prenup agreement’s but also include agreements during and after a marriage. The agreement outlines the arrangements to occur if the relationship ends. A financial agreement deals with the division of property, money and other assets. It can also be a guide for how debt is to be covered by the parties.

 

A financial agreement may also include the parties’ agreement on child maintenance, child support and spousal maintenance.

 

Superannuation and claims on the other party’s estate after death are also other elements that can be covered in a financial agreement.

 

Financial Agreements are used to avoid the need for the parties to go to court in respect of property matters and is a logical step to take in any relationship.

 

“Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst”
