FINANCIAL (INCLUDING PRE-NUPTIAL) AGREEMENTS
Benefits Of Financial Agreements
The benefits of finalising financial settlement matters by way of an Agreement rather than Consent Orders are:
The terms of the Agreement do not need to be disclosed to the Court or other third party.
The terms of the Agreement do not need to be approved by the Court, which may be beneficial if parties have reached agreement which the Court may not consider just and equitable.
An Agreement may be used as a vehicle to ensure that neither party seek [spouse maintenance] in the future, an Order which cannot be made by the Court.
At HDC, we can advise you about whether a Binding Financial Agreement is likely to assist in your circumstances.
