Your trusted prenup agreement lawyer

Prenuptial agreements often carry an unfair stigma, seen by some as planning for failure rather than a future.

This isn’t always the case however.

In reality, prenuptial agreements can serve as a practical approach to managing financial matters and protecting individual interests, ensuring both parties enter marriage with clear expectations and security.

By fostering open and honest discussions about finances early on, we can help couples craft prenuptial agreements that reinforce trust, promote fairness, and support the foundation of a strong, enduring partnership.

If you’d like to learn more about prenup agreements and how they can benefit your relationship, we offer free initial consultations to answer your questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a prenuptial agreement legally binding in Australia?

Yes, a prenuptial agreement, known in Australia as a Binding Financial Agreement (BFA), is legally binding if it meets all the legislative requirements under the Family Law Act 1975. To be binding, the agreement must be in writing, signed by both parties, and each party must have received independent legal advice before signing. The advice must cover the agreement’s implications, its advantages and disadvantages at the time the advice was provided, and the agreement must not have been obtained by fraud or under duress.

In Australia, a prenuptial agreement can include provisions related to the financial support of children (such as child support). However, these provisions must not contravene the principles set by the Child Support (Assessment) Act and are subject to change if they do not meet the child’s best interests at the time of the agreement’s enforcement. As for custody arrangements, while parties can outline their intentions, decisions about parenting and custody are always subject to the court’s review to ensure they are in the child’s best interests.

If future spouses cannot agree on the terms of a prenuptial agreement, it cannot be finalised and become legally binding. Couples might choose to enter mediation to resolve their disagreements. Mediation allows both parties to discuss their concerns and negotiate terms in a facilitated environment. If an agreement still cannot be reached, the prenuptial agreement cannot proceed, and the couple might consider other legal options or agreements to manage their financial matters.

Yes, a prenuptial agreement in Australia can be modified or revoked after it has been signed, but only under certain conditions. Both parties must agree to any changes or the revocation of the agreement. Like the original agreement, any modification or revocation must be made in writing, signed by both parties, and each party must receive independent legal advice on the change or termination. In some cases, a court can also set aside a prenuptial agreement if it is found to be unfair, was entered into under duress, fraud, or if the circumstances have changed significantly, making the agreement impractical or causing hardship to a child of the relationship.
