Postnuptial financial agreement - during marriage

So, it looks like you are planning to live happily ever after, but there may be some issues that need resolution. Do you need a postnuptial financial agreement?

A postnup operates in a similar way to a prenuptial agreement except it is made after the wedding.

So why would you want to make a postnuptial agreement?

Couples often make postnuptial agreements to help resolve recurring arguments over finances, assets, children, or other financial or family issues.

Other times it’s simply because they didn’t get around to making a prenuptial agreement before the wedding.

The reasons are many and varied but ultimately one or both of the parties are looking for re-assurance that their financial security is safe.

Because the financial agreement clearly sets out what should happen with assets and liabilities if the marriage breaks down, the likelihood of extended litigation is greatly diminished, along with the financial and emotional costs.

In this way, postnuptial agreements provide certainty over issues covered in the agreement, which in turn leads to greater harmony within the relationship.

FAQ: What is the difference between a postnuptial agreement and a financial agreement?

Answer:  Nothing.  Under Australia’s Family Law Act the correct name for this document is a Financial Agreement although many people know it by the common name of a postnuptial agreement.

Just to be clear, when we refer to a postnuptial financial agreement it is exactly the same document as a binding financial agreement made under section 90C of the Family Law Act 1975.
