We’ve Separated

So, you’ve separated. You might be wondering, what’s next? You and your partner will need to reach an agreement together about the division of your property and superannuation (formally known as your ‘property settlement’)—even if it is that you each keep your own “stuff”.

If you’ve a child together, you may want to consider reaching a parenting agreement too. It can be beneficial to get your agreement formalised so assuming that you reach an agreement together and want it formalised, the suggested next step is to make that agreement official.

For separated couples who’ve reached an agreement between themselves, we formalise their family law agreements in a legal, cost effective and time efficient way.

We’ve designed service options that minimise lawyer involvement and facilitate you and your partner being able to have the agreement paperwork prepared together. Read on to find out more.
