That doesn`t mean you`ve solved everything. This can mean that you agree on many important issues or that you are about to reach an agreement. Sometimes the parties need the support of experienced lawyers to enter into binding financial agreements to overcome the last hurdle. OFEs may also cover more specific financial matters, including: a binding financial agreement (“BFA”) is an agreement entered into in accordance with certain provisions of the Family Law Act (`the Act`). BFAs differ from court decisions or approval decisions because, when strict requirements are met, they allow the parties to agree on agreements for the division of their property and superannuation and/or payment of alimony different from the law. This means that when you enter into a BFA, you and your partner agree that in the event of separation or separation, your allocation of assets and liabilities will be governed by the terms of the agreement and not by a court decision. However, the court reserves the right to cancel your agreement if it proves unenforceable or if it is concluded under duress or fraud. By signing a financial agreement, the parties agree to a contract through provisions of the law that would otherwise determine the division of property after a separation. This is outside the tribunal`s usual procedure for the division of property and the determination of spousal support. For more information on this process, see our “Real Estate Accounts” section. You can also enter into a binding financial agreement to formalize your separation with your spouse or de facto partner. These agreements are concluded in accordance with Section 90D (for married relationships) or Section 90UD (for de facto relationships) of the Family Law Act.
