Prenups are also known as Binding Financial Agreements (BFAs). They are growing in popularity as people are frequently entering relationships with existing assets, as well as a more realistic view on the length of serious relationships in today's world.
While a prenup can be viewed as unromantic, it does allow a couple to have frank discussions with each other about their wealth and future, and can present a way to move forward on a trusting basis.
We operate as an online law firm, and provide fixed-fee quotes.
This not a DIY solution. We are a law firm, and our lawyers will work closely with you every step of the way.Book a free 15min call
A prenup should address all asset classes – real estate, shares, stocks, investments, vehicles, inheritances, property or corporate assets owed through companies or trusts. You cannot draft your own BFA. The use of a lawyer is a requirement to make the document binding. It needs to be a comprehensive document that covers as many different situations as can be planned for.
For a Prenuptial Agreement to be legally binding, both parties are required to fully disclose their assets, liabilities, income, and financial resources.
Then they need to list the assets they want to be exempted from inclusion in the shared asset pool should the parties separate.
Each party must seek independent legal advice to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the agreement, including its advantages and disadvantages. The validity of the agreement hinges on the mutual agreement and signature of both parties.
If your relationship breaks down and there is no prenup in place, then you will need to negotiate a property settlement with your ex-partner. This is typically done with lawyers on the basis of how the matter would be decided by the Courts (even if it doesn't reach the Courts). A prenup provides you with much more freedom and certainty to decide how you would like your property and assets divided in comparison with the family law process.
A prenup can be made by either a married or defacto couple. It can be made before moving in together or getting married - or afterwards.

Prenups are formally known as Binding Financial Agreements. They are also referred to as prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, separation agreements or divorce agreements.
Yes, a prenup can be challenged and potentially overturned by a court, but only under specific circumstances. Grounds for challenging a prenup include fraud, duress, unconscionable conduct, or significant changes in circumstances.
If a Binding Financial Agreement is breached, the party harmed by the breach can seek legal remedies through the court system. These remedies may include seeking compensation or enforcement of the agreement's terms through specific court orders.
Both Consent Orders and BFAs provide a structured approach for dividing assets, finances, and property at the end of a relationship.
If a prenup is not in place, then the alternative is commonly to resolve unresolved issues through negotiations, lawyers, or before the court.
