In Victoria, Orders with respect to parenting issues and/or property matters can be made pursuant to the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth), in either the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, or the Family Court of Australia.
I recently presented an information session for Law Week 2018 entitled “Do I need a Pre-Nup? Everything you ever wanted to know about Financial Agreements / Pre-Nuptial Agreements”. There was a request for the information provided at the session and so I intend to summarise the information provided along with links to assist.
With the new year upon us, many new enquiries relate to parenting orders and whether these can be changed. Thankfully in the recent case of Searson & Searson  FamCAFC 119 (5 July 2017) the Full Court (Murphy, Kent and Loughnan JJ) reviewed the current case law with respect to this.
While some family lawyers may be running for the hills when it comes to the preparation of a Financial Agreement prior to or during marriage, we aren’t at Farrell Family Lawyers.
