What Is A Binding Financial Agreement?

A Binding Financial Agreement (generally known as a Separation Agreement) is a legally binding agreement made between two former couples. The primary purpose is to put in writing the agreed financial arrangements once the parties’ relationship has broken down. Sections 90B-90KA of the Family Law Act apply to financial agreements for marriages. Sections 90UA-90UN apply to financial agreements for de facto couples (though it won’t apply to de facto couples residing in WA).

It is a quicker, less expensive and less stressful option than a court-imposed order. Especially if you understand the secret to a property settlement agreement in Australia
