Where a de facto relationship exists and breaks down it will be dealt with in the same way as a marriage breakdown, including the division of property, assets, superannuation and spousal maintenance. For the purposes of parenting arrangements, it does not make any difference if the parents were married or in a de facto relationship.  De facto couples today (same sex and heterosexual) are entitled to almost the same rights and claims when it comes to Family Law matters .

At Maclarens, we have considerable experience negotiating and implementing settlements and representing parties in Court in connection with de facto property settlements (Property (Relationships) Act proceedings).

If you have a De-facto Relationships concern let Maclarens Lawyers help you.
