Generally referred to as pre-marital or pre-nup agreements, a financial binding can be established at the beginning of a relationship before the conclusion of the marriage or before the conclusion of a de facto relationship. Running a BFA before you commit your relationship offers many advantages. A BFA can be used to protect the assets you have contributed to the relationship and ensure that they remain their property after separation. For more complex agreements, we also propose a combined fixed fee across the cost of the family court. This pricing structure often leads to very competitive pricing for our customers. If you do not wish to submit consent orders to the court, you can enter into your financial equalization with a binding financial agreement. If you enter into separation with approval decisions, the court or judge is required to verify that the agreement is fair and equitable in accordance with the law. A BFA does not have this requirement and is concluded outside the court. However, most of the benefits mentioned above can be guaranteed by formalizing your wealth sharing by a decision of approval (unless you are still in contact and wish to pre-plan the separation). A consent order is the type of agreement we recommend to our customers in 9/10 cases. Please note that our family practice in Brisbane is not preparing any pre-marriage agreements.
Financial agreements are divided into three groups: If you need independent legal advice for a financial agreement abroad due to the current COVID-19 travel restrictions, contact us and we advise you via online video conferencing. If you seek advice from a foreign lawyer, they must have a certificate of Australian practice to make the agreement legally binding. In order for financial or termination agreements to limit the power of a court to order financial agreements between de facto or married partners, the agreement must also comply with the laws of the contract contract and be authenticated in writing and by a lawyer. In most cases, you can establish your agreement, including legal advice, for two parties for less than 1940 $US. Ready to take off? Go to Choose your deal. 2.

When parties to a financial agreement obtain formal legal advice and obtain a certificate under the Family Act, the financial agreement becomes mandatory for the contracting parties. Our costs in other family law cases, such as alternative dispute resolution, mediation and arbitration, may also be based on the family expense scale or on a very reasonable fixed fee that we negotiate with you. A selection of billing methods can provide you with the most economical result in your family law case. Please contact us to learn more about our economic pricing structure. Binding Financial Agreements (commonly known as BFA for Family Law) is a legal agreement between the parties before, during or after the end of a relationship.
