Don’t be fooled into thinking your agreement is somehow different to everyone else and will be drafted from scratch. Law firms have always used template agreements, and your lawyer will start by populating one with the information you provide.

If you are not intending to get married, and wish to live together, you can still make a financial agreement under s90UB or s90UC.
If you are planning on getting married soon it is inadvisable to enter a prenuptial agreement within two (2) 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 the wedding day is imminent and you don’t have enough time to formalise your agreement before the wedding, you can always make a Post Nuptial Agreement after the wedding.
