  • you are able to move forward faster without stress and make a new start for you and your child or children

How My Lawyers can help
My Lawyers have extensive experience and would help you to settle your issues and disputes and reach agreement if possible.

My Lawyers are able to formalise the agreement reached between you and your former Partner.  This usually means that you will save significant legal costs and expenses and have certainty so that your best choices might be put into the Agreement rather than waiting for a Court Order with the uncertainty of waiting for a Judicial Officer to decide the case.

Formalise Financial Agreements
My Lawyers are able to formalise Financial Agreements also known as Binding Financial Agreements.

These Agreements are formalised by Applying for Consent Orders in your case where the Court makes Orders in the terms of the Binding Financial Agreement that you and your former partner have agreed upon.

These Binding Financial Agreements however need to be carefully prepared by experienced Lawyers to ensure that they are legally binding and as far as possible not be set aside.

However it is important to remember that a Court can in some circumstances declare the Agreement invalid and set it aside and this is why My Lawyers are best able to provide you with sound, timely legal advice in order for you to obtain the best possible outcome in your special circumstances and as far as possible ensure that it is enforceable and might not be easily set aside by a Court in the future.
