What Can We Do
We offer a range of premium law services, assisting our clients all over the world.
In the beginning, during, or upon the end of a relationship, we can help you by drafting a Relationship Property Agreement that sets out what is to happen to your property and/or how it is to be divided between you. Similarly, in regard to care of children in the event that you separate, we can help to resolve what the children’s care arrangements (if any) are to be.
The Law has strict requirements regarding what is required to bind parties to a Relationship Property Agreement and it is important to ensure that these requirements are met. We can advise you regarding what property should be regarded as separate property and therefore should not be divided between yourself and your partner.
It is important to remember that time and money spent at the beginning of a relationship, to have a binding agreement drawn up, will often save you a lot more money, time and stress later, in the event that the relationship comes to an end.
