What is a Binding Financial Agreement?
While Prenuptial Agreement is the more popular term used, it is actually a Binding Financial Agreement. You will see Binding Financial Agreements colloquially referred to as:
- Pre-nuptial Agreement (pre-nup)
- Post-nuptial Agreement (post-nup)
- Cohabitation Agreements
- Separation Agreements
A Binding Financial Agreement allows a party to a de facto relationship or marriage (same sex or opposite sex) to agree to the division of property in the event of separation.
This enables the parties of a relationship to have certainty and control over their future financial position, without proceeding to Court.
Our Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer can advise you on what you need to do.
