In a detailed interview outlining her vision for the future of Australia, One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has said that if given the opportunity to lead the country, all Australian couples would be forced to enter into a prenuptial agreement prior to marrying.
“Family law is high on my agenda,” the Queensland senator told the Sunday Mail. “It needs court-approved premarital agreements on finance and parental issues.”
Hanson says the pressure currently experienced by family law courts would be eased through the introduction of prenups because financial and child care agreements would already be in place.
“Family law is high on my agenda. I just think it needs a complete overhaul,” the 62-year-old said.
“It needs court-approved premarital agreements on finance and parental issues. So before someone goes into a relationship or a marriage, you must have a premarital agreement. It would be confidential (and lodged with courts)," she said.
"We’ve got to free up our court system. It’s overloaded. A lot of judgments aren’t being handed down for years.”
