A Binding Financial Agreement is a document setting out an agreement in relation to financial matters between a married or de facto couple (including same sex couples).

Binding Financial Agreements can deal with the division of property, assets and maintenance.

Binding Financial Agreements can be entered into:

  • Before a marriage or de facto relationship commences.
  • During a marriage or de facto relationship.
  • After separation.

A Binding Financial Agreement will not be binding unless both parties take independent legal advice prior to signing the agreement.

Binding Financial Agreements provide certainty on separation, and avoid the need for costly and time-consuming Family Court proceedings.
