  • Financial Contributions;
  • Children;
  • Inheritances;
  • Role as home maker and parent;
  • Health of the parties;
  • Assets and liabilities.

(c) We find that clients generally have many questions and we also provide information and advice that most people do not consider.

(d) Our aim is to attempt to negotiate a settlement between the respective parties amicably.

(e) As a last resort, the matter may proceed further to require Court proceedings being instituted but generally only as a last resort.

(f) Once parties have come to an acceptable agreement, we draft the necessary documentation to ensure the agreement is binding between the parties.

 

COHABITATION AGREEMENTS/PRE-NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

The Family Law Act also provides that parties residing together or who intend to marry may enter into a binding agreement with respect to protecting their assets at the outset of any relationship and also any assets and financial resources accumulated during that relationship.

This firm provides advice with a view to drafting documentation to assist the parties to protect and bind such an agreement.
