We agree that, when determining whether the agreement is valid, enforceable or effective, general law applies to contracts as well as the principles of fairness. This must be done to give effect to the intentions of the parties at the time of conclusion of the contract and within the framework of the statute. The different types of binding financial agreements are presented in the factsheet Types of Binding Financial Agreements & What type of BFA I need. If you do not use the right type of binding financial agreement for your circumstances, it may be annulled later by the court and your partner is not obliged to abide by it. In such cases, the conclusions on the intention of the parties depend on the particular circumstances of the case. That material is not necessarily limited to the initial decision to reconcile or, as in the present case, to write to the Court of Justice. Their intention can crystallize over time and as the parties reconcile to a more precise form, and they bring their lives together, including their financial affairs, so that it becomes incompatible with any other conclusion. Kostres & Kostres (2009) FLC 93-420 is a good illustration of both principles. The Assembly stated that an agreement was not reached for reasons of uncertainty. The contract was concluded two days before the wedding. At the time, both sides mistakenly thought the husband was an inexcusable banker. They didn`t tell their lawyers that. The parties` belief in the husband`s status led them to obtain assets in the name of their spouse and not in the common name of the parties.
Both parties requested that the terms of clause 6 of the agreement be “read”. They argued that different words should be inserted, which gave rise to different meanings. Despite the requirement that a financial agreement be in writing, it may be possible to include conditions in the agreement. It is not enough to prove that an agreement is ruthless, that the parties have unequal bargaining power, nor is there any recourse if the circumstances can be described as mere recklessness. However, if an agreement can be said to be clear and manifestly unfair and unfair (within the meaning of paragraph 79), this may be relevant to whether it is incompetent for a party to rely on the agreement. I am not making that kind of observation. In Stoddard & Stoddard  FMCAfam 735, the wife, without her husband`s knowledge, withdrew funds from the mortgage, thereby increasing the husband`s debt and improving his net position. . .
