Couples with no children
Changes to state and federal relationship law over the last few years give de facto couples the same rights, responsibilities and legal protection as married couples.
But more stringent definitions mean that couples may unknowingly fall into a relationship — something that can have legal and financial consequences for the unwary. If you separate, your ex-partner may be able to claim a portion of your assets. Negotiating this can add to the emotional trauma of the initial separation.
At James Noble Family Law, our team will help you understand your legal rights as a couple. We can help you draw up a financial agreement that sets out how you will divide joint assets if the relationship goes awry. Or we can help you negotiate a seperation agreement if you’ve separated prior to 1st March 2009.
James Noble Family Law offers a free 20-minute initial, Legal Options, consultation for new clients.
This consultation allows you to discuss your situation with complete confidentiality and without any obligation whatsoever.
