Prenuptial agreements and binding financial agreements will set out exactly how all or any of the assets, (owned by you at the date of signing the agreement or acquired after signing the agreement), will be divided between you and your partner in the event of breakdown of the marriage or the de facto relationship. The agreement may allow for maintenance issues to be dealt with in marriages and de facto relationships, after divorce or separation.

If you are contemplating marriage or entering a de facto relationship, it is a good idea to get a lawyer to draft and execute a prenuptial agreement/financial agreement for you. You can also have a prenuptial agreement/financial agreement drawn up during your relationship. This will safeguard your personal assets in the event your relationship does not work out.

PRE-NUPS, POST-NUPTIALS & BINDING FINANCIAL AGREEMENTS MACKAY (BFA’S)

Protect your assets and your financial future before, during, and after the breakdown of a relationship, partnership or marriage.

If parties in a relationship (family, de facto, same-sex couples) come to an agreement on how they intend to divide their assets, then they can enter into Consent Orders or a Prenuptial Agreement/Financial Agreement to make the agreement legally binding.

CONSENT ORDERS

Parties can enter into consent orders to finalise the arrangements in relation to property, children, and spousal maintenance by signing an Application for Consent Orders document and lodging the document with the Family Court of Australia. The Application is considered by the Court and the orders made by a Judicial Officer. Parties can apply for consent orders without the necessity of going to Court.

WHEN LIFE HAPPENS a Great thanks to the team at Family Lawyers Mackay for assisting me when Life came to a sudden stop. They have not sugar coat the the process. "There is no such thing as a winner in a Family separation" , but brought it into perspective for me. Together we had a fair outcome, and fair is the cornerstone to rebuild one's life! One can not ask for more than that.

I have found everyone I have encountered at Family Lawyers Mackay very helpful. Ian Field whom I dealt with provided me with a comprehensive summary of the issues, including some I had not even considered before. And then, rather than embark on a long, hostile and expensive litigation, he brokered a negotiated resolution acceptable to both parties. The final result was very much more than what I had hoped for and the costs were significantly reduced based on his negotiations
