Separation BFA PLUS

If you have reached an agreement on how your assets and liabilities are to be divided, then you should formally document your agreement through a Binding Financial Agreement or BFA, also called a binding separation agreement. This is essential if you need to split superannuation, transfer real estate and refinance mortgages. BFAs are fully enforceable in the Family Court and are recognised by the Offices of State Revenue for stamp duty exemption. AussieLegal's Separation BFA PLUS package includes, drafting, legal advice and certification for both parties.
