Post Nuptial Agreement
(Financial Agreement under to s90C Family Law act 1975)
What is a Post Nuptial Agreement?
A Post Nuptial agreement operates in a similar way to a Pre Nuptial agreement except it’s made after the wedding. Typically these agreements are used to preserve separate property such as real estate, business interests, an inheritance or other assets if the marriage were to break down.
Issues around finances, assets, children or even roles in a relationship can become a constant source of disagreement. So making a Post Nuptial agreement to settle these issues when the couple are friendly can promote harmony in the household and certainty of outcome.
A Financial Agreement removes the need to enter extended litigation following a relationship breakdown. This is because it prevents the parties from going to Court for orders relating to the assets and liabilities covered in the agreement.
For just $129.95 our Binding Post Nuptial Financial Agreement kit gives you the framework for a compliant Post Nuptial contract that can put to rest disputes over asset or debt ownership.
Sitting down with your partner now to work out what your agreement needs to achieve, before you both run off to the lawyers, will save you considerable time, money and anxiety.
