On 2 May 2012, the complainant lodged an appeal for annulment and requested that the funding agreement not be binding, as it is both an agreement under Part VIIIA and Part VIIIAB of the Family Law. The judge found that the agreement in question was an agreement under Section 90UJ (Part VIIIAB) of the Act. The Court found that a binding financial agreement (BFA) under the Family Act (Cth) could foresee both the breakdown of a de facto relationship and the breakdown of a subsequent marriage. This is because there is no necessary conflict between the functioning of the two types of agreements. This is because the relevant sections of the Act (S 90 B, S 90 UB, S 90C and S 90 UC) do not operate exclusively; On the contrary, they congratulate each other, so that it is open to parties who are considering either a de facto relationship or who are already in a de facto relationship, to place themselves in a dual purpose or two in a binding financial agreement (BFA) that would provide for both contingencies, namely a breakdown of their relationship in both forms. The allocation of assets was therefore carried out in accordance with the original de facto financial agreement between the two parties. A court can cancel the agreement and impose it. Situations in which this is possible are provided for in Section 90K (Married Couples) and Section 90UM (De facto Couples) of the Family Act 1975. Similarly, couples may decide to enter into such a financial agreement if they are separated but not yet divorced. BFA excludes the jurisdiction of the family court for your financial separation.
This means that when you enter into a BFA, you and your partner agree that in the event of separation or separation, your division of assets and liabilities will be governed by the terms of the agreement and not by a judgment of the Court. However, the Court reserves the right to quash your agreement if it is found to be unenforceable or concluded under duress or fraud. Section 90B provides for a binding financial agreement between the parties considering marriage and provides for the division of ownership in the event of a breakdown in their marital relationship. This is commonly known as Pre Nup. Section 90 C provides for similar provisions for parties already married and still married or married and separated, but not divorced.
