Financial Agreements for couples who are living together in W.A.

Use this agreement if you live in Western Australia, and are already living with your partner.

Already Living Together?

This cohabitation agreement allows you to document what you think would be a fair and equitable distribution of property in the event of separation, instead of leaving it up to the courts.

You can choose to deal with all of your financial interests now or just a single asset like a family farm, a business or an inheritance.

Couples of all ages make financial agreements for all sorts of reasons. For example, one or both partners:

  • might feel nervous about the possibility of losing the family home;
  • wish to protect a superannuation interest;
  • want to make sure an inheritance only goes to their children;
  • want to quarantine a family business from claim; 
  • wish protect one partner from the debts of the other;
  • Or simply want to declare that each party will keep their financial affairs separate from the other.

The reasons are many and varied, but the one consistent message is to provide peace of mind for those who feel they may be at risk of losing their financial security.

Western Australia has it's own laws for defacto couples

The state of Western Australia has maintained its own autonomy and jurisdiction concerning financial agreements for de facto couples.

This means that unlike the other states of Australia, if you live in WA your cohabitation 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.

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.

We can help you meet this requirement without spending a small fortune in legal fees through our Legal Review Service.

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