Highly acclaimed SBS programme Insight last night featured a discussion on Binding Financial Agreements or as they are colloquially known “pre-nups”.
The episode provides many different viewpoints on the ins and outs of Binding Financial Agreements, why they should be entered into and the importance of doing them right.
Binding Financial Agreements can be entered into before, during or after a relationship (both a marriage or a de facto relationship) but there are complex legal requirements to ensure their longevity and enforceability. These requirements stem from the terms of the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) and the case authority from decisions in both the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, Family Court of Australia and the High Court of Australia.
