The Family Law Act requires each party to the agreement to receive independent legal advice as to the advantages and disadvantages of entering into the Agreement.
Before your financial agreement becomes legally binding it must contain
This prevents either party from arguing that, when signing the agreement, they did not understand what they were signing or the consequences thereof.
With this in mind we have negotiated a reduced rate for our customers with several independent, nationally licensed lawyers who can provide the required advice by telephone and e-mail.
Our Agreement review service assists you to complete your financial agreement properly, meeting the requirements of the Act, with a minimum of fuss and expense.
“Fabulous service. We are very happy with the result and just how effortlessly it was achieved. Thank you.”

Collaborating with your spouse to reach and draft your agreement is a fresh approach to resolving issues that may arise when a relationship ends.
Reaching agreement in a non-combative atmosphere minimises costs, empowers the parties and reduces stress.
Our Lawyers understand that both parties have spent considerable time negotiating a mutually acceptable agreement and they simply need the added security and guidance of good legal advice.
The lawyers are not required to advise their clients in favour of or against signing an Agreement (particularly if the clients themselves are satisfied with it). Rather it is their duty to provide their clients with all such independent legal advice as is required to ensure that their consent to the Agreement is “fully informed”.
A fixed price means a fixed level of service and in the majority cases, the agreements based on our templates are relatively straightforward. However if your situation is particularly complicated additional costs may be involved.
