Sections 90B-90 C of the Family Law Act 1975 deal with financial agreements between the parties to a marriage. Article 90UA-90UN applies to financial agreements entered into by de facto couples. The Act provides for de facto financial agreements between couples only if, at the time of the conclusion of the agreement, the parties to the relationship had their habitual residence in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, the Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory or Norfolk Island. On 2 May 2012, the applicant filed an application for an initiative and requested that the financial agreement not be binding, since it claims to be both an agreement under Part VIIIA and Part VIIIAB of the Family Law Act. The procedural judge decided that the agreement in question complied with section 90UJ (Part VIIIAB) of the Act. A consent decision is a written agreement that is approved by a court. Signing a draft order of consent means that you accept the orders and follow the conditions indicated in the document. When assent is pronounced, it has the same effect as a court order issued by a judicial officer at the end of a trial. Consequently, the applicant`s action was dismissed and the allocation of assets according to the original BFA was found to be binding on both parties. A binding financial agreement (BFA) can be annulled by a court in accordance with the provisions of Article 90K or 90UM of the Family Law Act if: 1.
there is evidence of fraud (which could include a non-carry-over of assets or liabilities at the time of conclusion of the contract). 2. the agreement was concluded exclusively for the purpose of defrauding or defeating a creditor or was concluded in ruthless disregard of the interests of a creditor. 3. a party is in difficulty under the agreement or in respect of a child of the parties. (4) the agreement is deemed not applicable or not. This could be due to errors, public order, misrepresentation, a party was coerced at the time of execution, there was a breach of agreement or unscrupulous behavior. 5. The contract is considered unenforceable due to a change in one or both circumstances of the party. 6. There is a problem with superannuation, for example: the agreement provides for a superannuation interest rate that cannot be divided. .
