Binding Financial Agreements (Prenuptial Agreements)

Binding financial agreements (also known as prenuptial agreements) can be created before, during or after a marriage or de facto relationship. It’s important to be aware that when binding financial agreements are created, that the agreement conforms to the provisions of the Family Law Act 1975 because valid agreements can oust the jurisdictions of the courts.

Binding financial agreements can cover property and maintenance issues and because the matters in which binding financial agreements deal with can be complex, it is essential that anyone considering creating a binding financial agreement consult a lawyer who can assist in forming an agreement that meets all of the legal requirements.
