Prenuptial agreements and binding financial agreements will set out exactly how all or any of the assets, (owned by you at the date of signing the agreement or acquired after signing the agreement), will be divided between you and your partner in the event of breakdown of the marriage or the de facto relationship. The agreement may allow for maintenance issues to be dealt with in marriages and de facto relationships, after divorce or separation.
If you are contemplating marriage or entering a de facto relationship, it is a good idea to get a lawyer to draft and execute a prenuptial agreement/financial agreement for you. You can also have a prenuptial agreement/financial agreement drawn up during your relationship. This will safeguard your personal assets in the event your relationship does not work out.
