Same-sex couples are treated under the same laws as de facto partners are in property settlement proceedings. The laws relating to settlement at the end of a same-sex prenuptial agreement relationship have changed. The Whitmarsh Family Law now covers links that broken down on or after 1 March 2009.
As a general rule, both direct and indirect financial and non-financial contributions are taken into account when determining the de-facto property division. The new changes to de facto laws now allow for future needs and superannuation splitting arrangements to be considered as well.
A family lawyer can assist you to negotiate a settlement with your ex-partner, at any stage of the relationship. A family lawyer has the experience necessary to help guide you through the court system should the matter require court intervention. Remember, even if you are negotiating a settlement yourself, making an informed decision, before you sign anything, you should find out what your entitlements at law are
We have come to an agreement ourselves. How can we formalize it?
People in a relationship can make commercial agreements. Financial agreements can be classified broadly into two categories:
1. Cohabitation agreements (entered into before or during the relationship);
2. Termination agreements (made at or in anticipation of the end of the relationship).
If you have come to an agreement without legal advice, you should obtain advice before you sign anything. We can provide you with the information needed to make an informed decision before you enter into a binding agreement. We can also assist in drafting the agreement for you to ensure that it covers all the legal requirements that you may not have thought of.
