Should I have a Binding Financial Agreement

I am only in  a defacto relationship????

A Binding Financial Agreement (sometimes known as a “pre-nup”) is a private agreement that couples are able to enter into to deal with financial and property matters in the event of a relationship breakdown.  It is wise to enter into a binding financial agreement to protect your financial and property.

A Binding Financial Agreement  also commonly known as a Prenuptial agreement should be considered by all couples who are contemplating a de facto relationship, and can be done up before or during a de facto relationship. A Binding Financial Agreement is not about setting up your relationship to fail; it is about putting all the cards on the table and discussing issues to clarity any uncertainties.

Binding Financial Agreement whilst in a Defacto Relationship can be a necessity for certain situations such as:

  • your defacto partner has more property than the you at the begining of the relationship
  • it is your second marriage?  Do you have assets from your first marriage that you want to keep to pass onto your children
  • it is a de facto relationship and one party is moving into the other party’s property?
  • you want to avoid any hostility or uncertainty if the relationship does fail
  • you want to protect a future inheritance or a family business
  • keep matters out of court in the long term
