So, now we know you are divorced and do not need to deal with the splitting of superannuation assets. If this is correct read more about the divorce financial agreement.
Just to be clear, when we use the term "divorce agreement" it is the same document as a binding financial agreement, made under section 90D.
It’s not unusual for a couple to go through the process of getting a divorce without straightening out the property settlement issues.
If you are finalising the settlement yourself by using a financial agreement, then you can take as much time as you need to make these decisions.
It’s often simpler to sort the finances sooner because the longer you leave making the divorce agreement, the more difficult it becomes for some people to deal with the financial disclosure requirements.
Please Note: if you wish to apply to the courts so that they make a decision on your behalf about finances, then you must do so within 12 months of the divorce date.
A divorce agreement (or financial agreement) is a simple and convenient way to formalise the end of the relationship, at least from a financial perspective, giving both parties closure and a new beginning.
It deals with all the usual issues you may be faced with when dividing financial resources such as real estate, personal property (cars, furniture, etc), shares, debt, spousal maintenance and so forth when a relationship breaks down.
Some of these issues may seem a little daunting at first, but given the right template to start, some sample clauses and a little guidance, you will be relieved at how straight forward it actually is.
Remember, we have shown thousands of couples how to navigate this peaceful path, and it’s unlikely your case will be any different.
You can use this divorce agreement to settle property matters that do not include superannuation splitting.
