Has anyone here ever set up a binding financial agreement, and if so, how much did it cost? Have just been given a ballpark figure of 5-6k by a solicitor. I know it pays to shop around with just about anything so am curious to know if this figure is about right.
I’ve seen online there are companies where you can buy a template for an agreement for a few hundred dollars, fill in the blanks and hand that on to a solicitor which will supposedly save money on preparation of the document.
Terryw I know this is your area of expertise so am very interested to hear what your thoughts are, along with anyone else of course!

Would he interested to read @terryw opinion but my 2c are that any price from 0 to $10k would make sense.
Agreements are binding, especially when they are written down. You could write one yourself if it’s super simple or use a template or engage a solicitor. IMHO, it all depends on the complexity of the issue and the level of confidence you want in ensuring the agreement is air tight 👍😎TerrywParticipant@terrywJoin Date: 2001Post Count: 16,190
Not my area but you are looking at $5k to 10k depending on how complex.
Diy you will still need to pay lots of legal advice and amendments as it will be full of holes. Also each party needs a solicitor to explain it. The other side solicitor will also request amendments too.PeteParticipant@pjewittJoin Date: 2015Post Count: 50

I am also about to get married and would like to have a binding financial agreement drafted.
I have found this place
They seem to charge just under 2k. Has anyone used them?
Can anyone recommend a good solicitor in Victoria?
