Legal advice and your financial agreement

Before a financial agreement becomes legally binding, both parties are required by law to obtain independent legal advice.  Why is this so?

Make your Financial Agreement legally binding and take a fresh start on life.

Under the Family Law Act your financial agreement does not become binding until:

  • both parties have received independent legal advice before signing the agreement


  • there is a certificate from each lawyer that the advice has been provided.

After which the financial agreement is legally binding and must be adhered to. All that’s left is for you both to execute the agreed terms and start the next chapter in your life.

The Legal Advice acts as a Safety Net and ensures the strength of your agreement.

Our Legal Support Service makes that happen.

Simple, easy and at a competitive fixed price $ which provides legal advice for both parties (unless your situation is particularly complex).

Made sure we understood each clause

“The service provided by RP Emery was amazing, as was the appointment of our two separate Solicitors. Both gave us individual advice to suit our individual needs which led to a finally agreed Financial Agreement being prepared and signed off.

The instructions given by all parties was excellent and they made sure we understood each clause of the agreement we were signing.

The cost savings were substantial and we could not have asked for better. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!”  kymy799 from Tewantin

What a fantastic outcome

“What a fantastic outcome. Organising our Binding Financial Agreement was simple, inexpensive, and built goodwill between my ex-husband and me. Thank you for providing support as we worked through the process. RP Emery will guide you all the way. Lovely team to work with.”  joanned466
