Binding Financial Agreement end DeFacto
A Binding Financial Agreement end DeFacto (pre-nup) template for after the end of a defacto relationship:s 90UD
The general principles are the same, regardless of whether the parties were in a marriage or a defacto relationship, and are based on:
- working out what you’ve got and what you owe, that is your assets and debts and what they are worth
- looking at the direct financial contributions by each party to the marriage or defacto relationship such as wage and salary earnings
- looking at indirect financial contributions by each party such as gifts and inheritances from families
- looking at the non-financial contributions to the marriage or defacto relationship such as caring for children and homemaking, and
- future requirements – a court will take into account things like age, health, financial resources, care of children and ability to earn.
The way your assets and debts will be shared between you will depend on the individual circumstances of your family. Your settlement will probably be different from others you may have heard about.

Binding Financial Agreements
There are many names for Binding Financial Agreements, including;
- Pre-nuptial Agreements (commonly known as pre-nups),
- Post-nuptial Agreements (post-nups); and
- Cohabitation Agreements.
They are known by the courts as Binding Financial Agreements (BFA)
A BFA provides an agreement in advance for a division of assets if the relationship or marriage breaks down.
Virtually everyone at some stage in their lives will be in a relationship which is subject to the Family Law Act. Most defacto and same sex couples are, after 2 years, treated the same way as married couples.
Young couples commence living together without any consideration of the legal consequences. Older couples seeking company can be deemed to be in a de Facto relationship even if it was not their initial intention. On a separation and despite prior promises not to, a claim can be made.
Before considering solutions, an understanding of how the Court deals with those assets would be useful.
Binding Financial Agreements can be entered into before the commencement of a marriage, de facto relationships or even during or after a marriage or separation. relationship and even after separation.
BFA’s need to be set up correctly to be legally binding. To be binding, there are certain requirements that BFA’s need to meet, if these items are not met, then the agreement can be void or set aside.
It is advisable that a BFA be reviewed every 24 months or after, during any changes in relationship.
A correctly executed BFA may provide some degree of certainty to the parties and thus avoid unnecessary arguments, in the event that a relationship ends, as they have agreed in advance as to how the property will be divided.
It can also make parties feel secure knowing that the property they have accumulated before the relationship or marriage is safe. By reaching agreement in advance, the issues that occur after a break up are more likely to be carried out without costly legal expenses or court delays.
Binding Financial Agreements can provide comfort to relationships if issues arise.
