At Hartley Family Law we are experts in protecting your wealth both prior to entering into a relationship and during a relationship. We prepare very detailed and carefully drafted agreements that protect your wealth upon the breakdown of any relationship.
Whether you are entering into a second relationship and wish to preserve the modest amount of assets you have from any future claim or whether you have a large corporate empire that needs protection in the event of any breakdown of a relationship, then HFL are the best lawyers for the job.
Some family lawyers will not even touch Binding Financial Agreements or Pre-Nuptial Agreements. They are concerned against insurance claims and negligence’s suits being brought against them.
We have no such fears! We are experts in the area and keep abreast of all cases and continually update our precedents and guidelines to ensure we draft the best possible agreement for your circumstances.
A well drafted and documented Binding Financial Agreement does not come cheap. If you want a lawyer that will give you a cheap price for a cheap agreement then we are not your lawyers.
We take seriously, the role of protecting your wealth in the event of a future breakdown and doing everything possible to maximise that protection.
We specialise in doing both financial agreement both before and during a relationship and protecting your hard earned wealth in the event of the breakdown in your relationship.
