Defacto/Spousal Financial Agreement

What is a Financial Agreement?

A Financial Agreement is a contract between two or more parties made under Part VIIIA (for marriages) or Division 4 of Part VIIIAB (for de facto relationships) of the Family Law Act 1975.

A Financial Agreement, if it binding, ousts the Court’s jurisdiction in relation to financial proceedings between the parties generally, or in relation to specific issues. In other words, a Financial Agreement, if prepared and entered into properly, can be a way to ‘contract out’ of court proceedings.
