What are financial agreements?
Financial agreements are a means for couples (de facto or married) to opt out of the court’s jurisdiction to deal with financial matters (i.e. property settlements and spousal maintenance), and instead enter into a type of contract for the division of assets and spousal maintenance.
Financial agreements can be entered into:
(a) Before marriage (known as pre-nuptial agreements)
(b) During a marriage (regardless of whether divorce has occurred)
(c) After divorce
