Prenup Lawyers In Carlton
A prenuptial agreement (or prenup as it’s generally known) is a legal document that outlines the responsibilities and rights of a couple in the case of a separation or divorce. Based in Carlton, RRR Lawyers has extensive experience providing detailed and binding prenups for couples across Melbourne.
Why Is Prenup Important?
A prenup is most commonly used to outline how assets, property and finances will be distributed in the case of a divorce. They are also used to clearly lay out non-financial rights such as visitation rights and legal responsibilities.
Most often, a prenup is not prepared with an eye towards divorce. They are intended to provide security, certainty and peace of mind by ensuring the division and distribution of assets is agreed on ahead of time.
Contrary to popular belief, prenups do not need to be signed before a wedding. They can be entered into at any stage of any relationship including before or after a marriage, after a breakup, or at any stage of a defacto relationship.
Separation & Divorce Lawyers In Carlton
A separation or divorce can be a painful and stressful time. Without a prenup, a divorce can end up bogged down in protracted legal disputes over the division of assets and the responsibilities of each party.
With Australians generally getting married later in life, people are entering into relationships with more assets to protect. This can increase the complexity and difficulty of divorce proceedings.
However, with a prenup, there is an agreed-on division of assets and legal responsibilities that will simplify any potential divorce proceedings and save you money and heartache.
A prenup will help to prevent time-consuming and expensive litigation in the case of divorce. It will clearly identify ownership of assets brought into the relationship as well as assets acquired during the relationship and it identifies and protects business interests and legal rights and responsibilities.
Who Should Get a Prenup?
A prenup can be useful for anyone entering into or currently in a relationship. However, they can be particularly beneficial for the following groups of people:
- People entering into a second marriage
- People with children from previous marriages
- People with high net worth or significant assets that they want protected
- People with significant debts/liabilities or criminal backgrounds
- Couples employing asset protection strategies
