The Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) now covers de facto relationships and we can advise you about your rights, entitlements and obligations for property settlement, spousal maintenance, superannuation splitting and children’s issues arising from the relationship.

There are many misconceptions out there with respect to property settlement after the breakdown of a de facto relationship and we can provide you with all the advice that you may need.

We can help finalise property settlement and children’s Orders either by negotiation with the other side or through bringing an Application in the Family Law Courts to obtain Court orders and ensure any agreement is final and binding.

There is a two year time limit after separation of a de facto relationship to apply for a property settlement application in Court. There may be circumstances where the time limit may be extended, however legal advice should be obtained in this instance.
