How does a prenuptial agreement work in Australia?

Will Estate Strip5
Will Estate Strip2

In Australia, a prenuptial agreement or “prenup” is legally known as a Binding Financial Agreement (BFA).

It is a legal contract that outlines the division of assets and financial responsibilities in the event of a divorce or separation.

This agreement is made before the marriage takes place and can cover a wide range of financial matters, including:

  • Division of property and assets
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Superannuation splitting
  • Debt allocation

To be legally binding, a prenuptial agreement must be drafted and signed by both parties, with each party receiving independent legal advice.

This ensures that the agreement is fair and that both partners fully understand their rights and obligations.

If you’re looking to create a “prenup”, we offer free initial consultation to provide you with more clarity about how you’ll need to tailor your agreement based on you or your partner’s specific needs.

When is a Prenuptial Agreement Advisable?

A prenuptial agreement can be beneficial for a variety of couples, including:

  • Those with significant assets, such as property, investments, or business
  • Individuals who have been previously married and want to protect their assets
  • Couples with children from previous relationships
  • Partners who have a significant difference in wealth or earning potential

By having a prenuptial agreement in place, you can provide clarity and certainty in the event of a divorce or separation, helping to avoid costly and emotionally draining legal battles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before forwarding the building and pest report to your Arcuri Turnbull Law conveyancer for either rectifications or a reduction in purchase price, please include a further explanation or instructions surrounding negotiations with the building and pest condition. These need to be itemised and written instructions forwarded along with the report before we can make any requests.  The seller can either deny the request, negotiate further or agree to the request.

Late payment of deposits to stakeholders (especially the balance deposit) means the Buyer will be in default of the contract if the deposit is not paid on the date shown in the reference schedule.  Evidence of an electronic transaction can be provided to the deposit holder and this is taken as being received on the due date.

We recommend that you advise the Agent of our contact details now so that our details can be inserted into the Contract once you have verbally accepted an offer. If you are unsure of the terms of the Contract and would like our office to review the Contract, please ask the Agent to email the Contract to us prior to signing. Once the terms have been agreed upon and a Contract has been signed by both parties, the Agent will send our office a copy of the Contract and we will open a file and email you our initial information pack.

As settlements nowadays are conducted electronically (via the PEXA platform), your sale and purchase settlements can be “linked” making it is a seamless process to utilise any surplus funds from your sale towards your purchase settlement, payout any existing mortgage/s on the property you are selling, and for your financier to advance any additional funds required for your purchase, allowing for both transactions to occur “simultaneously” and for you to be able to move into your new property on the day of settlement, once settlement has been effected.
