Family Lawyers Newcastle & Central Coast

Get what you deserve with the support of Newcastle’s No.1 Team of Family Lawyers.

Overview

If you are able to reach an agreement about your Family Law Property Settlement there are two ways that the agreement can be documented:

  • By way of Consent Orders, or
  • Through a Binding Financial Agreement (BFA) or a Separation Agreement.

Entering into a Binding Financial Agreement ousts the jurisdiction of the Court to make Orders about the alteration of parties property interests. By entering into a BFA you are in effect contracting out of the ability of the Court to make a decision about what you are entitled to in a Family Law Property Settlement.

BFA’s can be entered into by parties to a marriage or de facto relationship, at the beginning of, during, or at the conclusion of the relationship and there is a requirement that each party to a BFA obtain independent legal advice prior to entering into the agreement.

Testimonials

It is so good to see a professional with such great customer service

You were actually referred to me by one of your previous clients. Just goes to show how strong word of mouth is, especially in this town. There are now more people running around Newcastle saying what a terrific job you do.

From my perspective you are light years ahead of the competition. It is so good to see a professional with such great customer service, who can communicate in a calm clear manner, especially when I am and usually a bit emotional.

Keep up the good work Sam, I like forward to continuing to work with you on my matter.

Thank you for all your support

Thanks Samantha,

I’m still feeling a little shell-shocked but slowly getting used to the idea that it is nearly all over.

Thank you for all your support – professionally and emotionally. It was a big day and I was glad you were with me throughout the entire process.
