What are binding financial agreements?

Sometimes people know these agreements as ‘prenuptial agreements’ but the legal term is ‘financial agreements’. You can make a financial agreement before, during or after a marriage or de facto relationship. These agreements can cover:

  • Financial settlement (including superannuation entitlements if you were married) after the breakdown of a marriage or a de facto relationship.
  • Financial support (maintenance) of one spouse by the other after the breakdown of a marriage or a de facto relationship.
  • Any incidental issues.

For a financial agreement to be legally binding, you must both have:

  • Signed the agreement, and
  • Received independent legal advice before signing.
