Contracting Out Agreement or ‘Pre Nup’
Many people entering into relationships today, whether it be a marriage, civil union or de-facto relationship, own assets prior to commencing the relationship. If you want to find out more about the legal status of those assets now and in the future then you need to talk to us about a Contracting Out Agreement.
Contracting Out Agreements have a legislative base and there are strict requirements in order for the agreement to be binding. They are essentially an agreement made between the parties as to what is separate property and what is relationship property. Each party to an agreement must obtain independent legal advice and we strive to ensure that you are fully advised on the effects and implications of the agreement.
