Separation and Divorce Settlement Agreements

Finding Resolution for a New Beginning


When couples face the challenges of separation and divorce, the Property (Relationships) Act 1976 (“the Act”) provides an important framework for establishing a fair and binding (enforceable at law) separation agreement with respect to your property – your assets and liabilities.  There is also another law that sets out proper processes and ensures fairness where children are involved.   

Legal advice is necessary in order to form a binding relationship property agreement; and to ensure that you are fully informed about your rights, obligations, and entitlements regarding property division. If the requirements for a binding Agreement under the Act aren’t followed, this may mean a separation agreement is unenforceable.  Our job is to help you navigate the complexities of separation and divorce with confidence.  We can ensure your agreement complies with the law and provides the necessary protections for you.

We recommend you contact our Mactodd team at an early stage if you are going through a divorce or separation.
