Financial Agreement for Couples before they move in together in W.A.

Use this financial agreement if you live in Western Australia, before you move in with your partner.

Thinking about moving in together?

It’s a big step, for many reasons. From a financial point of view, moving in with your significant other can have unintended consequences.

If you’re 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.

Making a pre de facto or pre cohabitation agreement before you move in together gives you peace of mind that your assets are protected.  It allows you to stipulate and quarantine particular assets or financial resources from claim, should the relationship come to an end.

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.

Western Australia has it's own law for defacto couples

The state of Western Australia has maintained its own autonomy and jurisdiction concerning financial agreements for de facto couples.  As such, de facto couples living in Western Australia enjoy all the same rights as married couples in relation to property and access to the Family Court.

This means that unlike the other states of Australia, if you live in WA, your financial agreement must adhere to the regulations set down by the Family Court Act 1997, instead of the federal Family Law Act. In all other respects, the agreements operate in much the same fashion.

5 step process

Why do you need to get Legal Advice?

You need to get legal advice before a financial agreement becomes legally binding because it is required under the Family Law Act.

The Legal Advice acts as your safety net to ensure you understand your rights and how the agreement affects you.

Our fixed price Legal Advice (Legal Review Service $ covers both parties in most cases) so you can get your financial agreement certified without spending a fortune.
