Prior to becoming married or entering into a common law relationship, parties may want to consider whether to enter into an agreement. Such agreements typically govern the parties’ financial affairs in the event that the relationship breaks down. Such agreements may also specify how certain matters will be dealt with during a relationship.

These type of agreements are usually entered into prior to marriage or cohabitation but can be negotiated afterwards if the parties are willing.

An agreement may not be needed in every case. Commonly, these type of agreements are drafted when one or both parties have significant assets or debts.

Lawyers at South Point Law Centre can help you determine whether an agreement is appropriate for you and, if needed, draft a suitable agreement with terms designed for your particular situation.
