Family Law

De Facto Relationships

Under Australian law, parties to a de facto relationship are afforded the same recognition as married couples when it comes to dealing with the breakdown of the relationship. Once it is established that the requirements of a de facto relationship have been met, the parties are able to rely on provisions in the Family Law Act in the same way that married couples do when a relationship has broken down. 

If you are in a same sex or de facto relationship or have separated from your partner and require legal assistance from a family lawyer, we invite you to contact your nearest Prime Lawyers office.

We have offices in Sydney, Parramatta, Chatswood, Sutherland and Wollongong.
