If you are living with someone or intending to live with someone, or you intend to get married or are already married, then you may wish to consider a Binding Financial Agreement ('BFA') to protect yourself against a possible claim on your assets in the event of separation at some time in the future. Also called prenuptial agreements or de facto agreements, they are fully enforceable in the Family Court of Australia and may be signed before or after you move in together, or before or after you get married, and apply equally to same-sex couples. The AussieLegal BFA PLUS service includes legal advice and certification for both parties so that the BFA is fully compliant and enforceable in the Family Court.
