Contracting Out Agreement ("pre-nups")

Getting married? Or already in a de facto relationship?

A Contracting Out Agreement (a.k.a. Prenuptial Agreement) is a sensible way to protect your assets.

If you don’t have anything in place, and your relationship comes to an end, the division of assets will automatically fall under standard New Zealand Relationship Property Law (even if this is not what you or your partner want).

Contracting Out Agreements are very common for couples entering a relationship, especially where there are already substantial assets owned by one or both parties.
