What is a financial agreement?
A financial agreement (also known as a binding financial agreement) is a written agreement or contract between two parties that sets out how the parties would like to divide their financial resources if the relationship comes to an end.
Under Part VIIIA for married couples, or Part VIIIAB for de facto couples, of the Family Law Act 1975, you can enter into a financial agreement either before, during or after your relationship has ended. So the term financial agreement is actually an umbrella term that covers each phase of a relationship.
You may be a married, de facto or same sex couple – it makes no difference. All are treated equally under the Family Law Act and anyone who is a resident of Australia can make a financial agreement.
