Frequently Asked Questions

Can a binding financial agreement be overturned?

Yes, a Binding Financial Agreement can be overturned under certain conditions, despite being a robust legal document. Instances where an agreement might be challenged include scenarios where there was fraudulent activity, unconscionable conduct, a significant change in circumstances that affects the care of children, or if the agreement was entered into without proper legal advice. Stanford Legal ensures that your agreement is crafted with precision and foresight to minimise the risk of such challenges.

Absolutely. Binding Financial Agreements are enforceable legal documents that are recognised under Australian family law. They provide a way for parties to agree on the division of financial assets and spousal maintenance in the event of a relationship breakdown. However, enforceability hinges on strict adherence to legal requirements, including full financial disclosure and both parties receiving independent legal advice. Stanford Legal’s meticulous approach ensures your agreement meets all legal criteria for enforceability.

No, a Binding Financial Agreement does not need to go to court. The primary purpose of these agreements is to allow couples to amicably settle their financial affairs without court intervention. However, should a dispute arise or if the agreement is challenged, court involvement may become necessary. At Stanford Legal, we strive to create agreements that stand firm, aiming to prevent future litigation and promote amicable resolutions.

Securing a Binding Financial Agreement requires a structured legal process, which begins with comprehensive discussions about your financial circumstances and objectives. Both parties must then seek independent legal advice to ensure the agreement’s terms are understood and fair. The team at Stanford Legal will guide you through each step, from drafting the agreement to ensure it’s legally binding, ensuring you’re fully informed and protected throughout the process.
