Separation Agreement - Family Law Legal Documents

The first step for married couples who are separating to settle financial matters

Are you married and are separating or intending to separate?

This Separation Agreement Kit is for use by married couples to finalise and settle all financial matters in dispute, including spousal maintenance, child maintenance, debts and splitting assets (including superannuation).

It empowers you to navigate through an emotionally challenging time and focus on coming to an agreement between you and your partner about the important issues!

You can agree your financial separation as soon as you’ve decided to stop living together – you don’t have to wait the 12 months that is required for a divorce.

What you get – Separation Agreement Kit

This Separation Agreement Kit complies with section 90C of the Family Law Act 1975 and includes professionally drafted:

  1. Separation Agreement template (binding financial agreement)
  2. Easy to follow instructions
  3. Customer support if needed

Benefits of a Separation Agreement

Benefits of reaching an amicable and timely separation and property settlement:

  • You decide how you’ll divide your joint assets and liabilities, including superannuation, rather than having the court decide for you.
  • Reduce or avoid the significant financial, emotional and time cost of court proceedings and move forward with your life more quickly.
  • Foster open communication to more effectively resolve any conflict with your former partner.

If you’re in a de facto relationship (not married) in Western Australia, then use De Facto Separation Agreement Kit.

If you’re already divorced, but haven’t arranged settlement of your financial matters, then use the Post Divorce Settlement Agreement Kit.

A separation is a time of change in your life, that’s why a bonus will kit is included so that you can reassess and create a new will to reflect your new situation.

You must get independent advice for the Agreement to be binding

Both parties must get independent legal advice before signing the agreement. 

You can book a legal document review by a family lawyer so that you can complete this requirement at a fixed cost.

Cost

$199 for the entire Separation Agreement Kit.
