Before you tie or untie the knot with Tessa Kelman


Episode Description


Before you tie or untie the knot with Tessa Kelman


Today I have Tessa Kelman on the show to discuss everything you should know and talk about before you tie or untie the knot. Tessa is a family lawyer based in Sydney for Lander and Rogers law firm and is an absolute wealth of knowledge on marriage, defacto and separation law. 


Tessa is here to share with us some of the common mistakes she sees women making when preparing for a marriage, defacto relationship, divorce or separation and fill us in on everything we should be doing instead to protect our financials, property, children, and approach big decisions with preparation and confidence. 


The biggest mistake Tessa sees every day is couples not having a discussion before getting married or committing to someone on a defacto basis about what your goals are for the future, any assets coming into the relationship, plans for the assets in the future, whether you’re aligned in terms of how you want to spend or save money, and what would happen if you decide to have children (in terms of who would stay at home/daycare), and, if you ever decide to separate. 


We all come from different financial backgrounds and I know these conversations can be very awkward and clunky to bring up but they are so important to set yourself up with financial confidence and know that if anything goes wrong, you’re always covered. 


Tessa explores how the family court works, contracts including parenting arrangements and binding financial agreements, keeping on top of all of your documentation, record keeping, and reminds us that, in Australia, a separation settlement is definitely not always 50/50. 


Tune in and write down all of Tessa’s advice and wisdom to keep yourself protected before getting married/defacto or separated/divorced and breathe a big sigh of relief knowing your future is covered.
