What You Should Look for When Hiring a Prenup Lawyer

When hiring a prenup lawyer, you will want to know that if they are a specialised divorce lawyer that has previous experience drafting prenups.

Prenups don’t have the best reputation in Australia.

This is largely because many legal practitioners may ‘dip their toes’ in the world of prenups and offer it as a service, but aren’t familiar with the latest laws surrounding them.

It is really important that you engage a law firm that is proficient in prenups, and have the experience to assure you that the agreement will be binding.

    How Does a Prenup Work

    To ensure a valid and binding prenuptial agreement in Australia, follow these key steps in order:

    Lawyers will then inform their clients about how the prenup affects their rights, including its advantages and disadvantages.

    Initially, each party must seek independent legal advice from a lawyer specialising in prenuptial agreements to understand their rights.

    The legal advice also encompasses the necessity of the agreement and the fairness of the proposed property division within the prenup.

    Each party needs to prepare basic financial and personal information for their lawyer, including assets, liabilities, employment, and salary details.

    This preparation includes providing the most recent tax return and bank statements, along with preferences for property division in case of a relationship breakdown.

    What is a Prenup

    A prenuptial agreement in Australia, commonly known as a prenup, is a document that governs how your assets will be distributed if you and your partner separate. The legal term for a prenup is a binding financial agreement.

    At any stage of relationship, couples can enter into a binding financial agreement. It’s not possible to enter into a prenup if there’s already a valid prenup with another person.

    Essentially, it lists all the property and any debts that each person owns and then outlines each person’s property rights after the marriage. Prenup is a written contract that establishes each person’s financial standing and how finances will be split after a separation.

    Both parties intending to enter into a prenup must ordinarily reside in Australia. Each party must also obtain Independent Legal Advice from different lawyers working in different law firms. The lawyers must also sign a certificate confirming that the advice, as required by the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth), was given to their client before their client signed the Agreement.

    I received excellent legal representation. Juliana’s and Monique’s professionalism is remarkable, along with their knowledge and execution of the law. With this being, not only a very difficult situation, but it was also an extremely sensitive and emotional time in my life and Monique handled this case from beginning to end with what I would consider perfection in every aspect. Highly recommend !! 🤗🤗😊 Thanks, J Yousef
