Financial agreement made before marriage - prenuptial agreement

A financial agreement made before marriage is more commonly known as a prenuptial agreement or 'prenup'.

So whether we use the term financial agreement or prenuptial agreement, we are talking about the same thing.

Essentially a prenup is a practical plan for how the assets, debts and other matters to do with the marriage will be dealt with if the relationship breaks down.

Putting an agreement in place gives the couple peace of mind and offers certainty about the future. It stops niggling doubts and settles the “what happen’s if?” questions.

 

No need to go to Court

prenup agreement is an alternative to court action. It is a method for the parties to negotiate a settlement of their family issues in the event of future separation. This means that, at least insofar as they concern money and possibly child support issues, the couple have resolved their issues in advance without needing the court to impose a solution.

Common Issues that you can cover in a prenup

1

Protection of Assets

Partners often wish to maintain control over their own finances, businesses, houses or investments. Putting a written agreement in place that determines in advance what's yours, mine and ours reduces the possibility of such issues becoming the cause of a relationship breakdown and can actually strengthen the relationship.

2

Quarantine of Debt

You can use a prenup to quarantine the debts of one party so that the other party is not held responsible for it at a future time.

3

Provision for Children

If you are entering into a second or subsequent marriage with children from a previous relationship, it's quite common to have concerns for the preservation of family property. As part of a sound estate plan, a financial agreement can provide the peace of mind that accumulated wealth will be quarantined and passed on to your children in the event of separation or death.

Getting Married Soon?

Getting married soon?  It is inadvisable to enter a prenuptial agreement within two weeks of your wedding.  You won’t find this warning anywhere in the Act, it’s just something our lawyers believe could go to proving undue influence.

If you are running out of time and cannot formalise the prenup before the big day then you can always make a postnuptial agreement after the wedding which will work just as effectively as a prenup.
