De facto agreement before cohabitation

So, it looks like you are thinking about taking the next step in your relationship. Do you need a de facto agreement before cohabitation? Most likely it will be a turning point in your life and it’s a decision one should not take lightly.

Sure, if you’re only young and just starting out, you may not care about all the “what ifs” that go along with a breakdown in the relationship.  After all, what have you got to lose?

However, if you’re a little older, worked hard most of your life or even been through a messy break up before, you might be a little more cautious about protecting your financial security.

When the Family Law Act was amended back in 2009, de facto couples were given similar rights in relation to property that were once only available to married couples.

This binding financial agreement kit has been drafted to put your mind at ease, by stipulating that certain property will be quarantined from claim and that each party is able to leave the relationship, should the need arise, with the property they brought in.

This binding financial agreement kit has been drafted to put your mind at ease, by stipulating that certain property will be quarantined from claim and that each party is able to leave the relationship, should the need arise, with the property they brought in.

Property acquired during the course of the relationship can be held separately or shared together, according to the contributions made.  Rules about everyday living expenses can be spelled out, so each party knows exactly where they stand, and the document is flexible enough to include your own specific provisions.
