Talking about what would happen if you were to go your separate ways can be a touchy subject, and it is understandable if you feel some anxiety in doing so.
However, if you can overcome this initial discomfort and talk openly with your partner, defining your rights in advance can be a wise thing to do.
In fact practicing the skill of honest communication about important issues such as money, property, and family is more likely to bring you closer together and prevent divorce.
If you are not intending to get married you can still make a binding financial agreement under s90UB or s90UC.
A Word of Warning – If you are planning on getting married soon it is inadvisable to enter a prenuptial agreement within four weeks of your wedding. You won’t find this warning anywhere in the Act it’s just something our lawyers believe could go to proving undue influence. If time is short and there is not enough to formalise your agreement before the wedding you can always make a Post Nuptial Agreement after the wedding.
