Defacto and Other Relationships

De Facto Relationships

We understand that parties in a de facto relationship may also find themselves needing assistance with resolving property settlement and children’s issues following the breakdown of their relationship.  
For more information on children’s issues please click here.

In property settlement relating to de facto couples there are however requirements that firstly need to be satisfied to prove that a ‘de facto’ relationship existed before any determination as to property settlement entitlements can be made.  It may also be necessary to prove when a de facto relationship commenced or ended.

There are also strict time limitations in place from the date of separation to make any applications with respect to making property claims against a former partner.

We understand the legal issues surrounding de facto relationships and the requirements needed to establish that a de facto relationship exists.

We have an in depth understanding of this areas of the law to assist our clients in seeking a resolution to their issues whether by alternative dispute resolution or engaging the court process or both.

We can therefore provide assistance to clients who are in de facto relationships and may be seeking a property settlement or to resolve children’s issues.
