Should I get a ‘pre-nup’ (Binding Financial Agreement)?

An interesting article today in the magazine Lawyers Weekly re ‘pre-nups’:

https://www.lawyersweekly.com.au/sme-law/25151-the-year-of-the-pre-nup-is-upon-us-says-family-lawyer?utm_source=LawyersWeekly&utm_campaign=05_03_19&utm_medium=email&utm_content=4

As quoted in the article by an experienced family lawyer;

“…pre-nups were in the past thought of to be an agreement for the “uber rich”, they’re now increasingly regarded as important and necessary risk management insurance against a relationship breakdown. This is especially so for business people, those from the “big end” of town or those embarking on a second or third relationship and wanting to protect financial and other assets should the relationship fail’… “The point to remember is that pre-nups are absolutely legally enforceable. These agreements are not one-sided. They serve to protect the financial assets that each partner brings to the relationship”… “They can also be used to protect the inheritance rights of children and other beneficiaries from a previous marriage or relationship.”

Even if ultimately not pursued, anyone entering a serious relationship or considering marriage, should consult a lawyer such as Springdale Legal.
