What is a prenuptial agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is a binding private contract between any couple planning or contemplating marriage or a relationship. It specifies how the assets, property and debts of the couple will be divided in the event of a breakup.
It makes sense to use experienced prenuptial lawyers to help draw up the contract to ensure that all bases are covered. While prenuptial agreements are generally signed before marriage, a financial contract between the parties can also be drawn up after the marriage.
Should you sign a prenuptial agreement?
Many couples are reluctant to enter a prenuptial agreement, especially at a time when they are most in love and about to make the ultimate commitment to each other. However, history and experience have taught us that signing a prenuptial agreement is a smart, though seemingly unromantic, method of protecting both parties in the event of a divorce or break up.
What are the benefits of a prenuptial agreement in Australia?
A well-drawn up prenuptial agreement can help a couple avoid lengthy and expensive legal proceedings in the event of a breakup or divorce. It should stipulate exactly who gets what and who owes what, making any legal action unnecessary.
As much as you might be reluctant to sign a prenuptial agreement at this time in your life, you may be relieved that you did.
