An article reported on the Age news website featuring a high profile couple provides a timely reminder that a binding financial agreement (or pre-nup) must comply with strict legislative requirements to be binding. The Age reports that Grant Hackett is suing over a pre-nup agreement with Candice Alley. He is pursuing legal action against two law firms over an allegedly botched pre-nuptial agreement.
Grant Hackett alleges that the binding financial agreement was not drafted in a way that complied with the legal requirements, and that his lawyers failed to correct the problem when he made changes to it.
To ensure that a binding financial agreement complies with the relevant legislation you should instruct experienced family lawyers such as Carr & Co to prepare your agreement and provide you with comprehensive legal advice.
