If you are separating from a De Facto Relationship, we can provide you with important legal advice

De Facto Relationships and Separation

In today's modern society, more and more couples are choosing to live together in de facto relationships before or instead of marriage. While this can offer many benefits, such as shared expenses and companionship, it can also bring about unique challenges if the relationship comes to an end.

When a de facto couple decides to separate, the process can be just as emotionally and legally complex as a marriage.


It is important to understand that even though you were not legally married, you may still have rights and entitlements that need to be considered during the separation process.

One of the first steps that de facto couples should take when separating is to seek legal advice.  With our experience in de facto relationships, we can help you understand your rights and obligations, and guide you through the process of separating your assets and liabilities. This can include dividing property, child custody arrangements, and financial support if necessary.

It is also important to consider the emotional aspect of separating from a de facto partner. It can be a challenging and emotional time, and it may be helpful to seek counselling or support from friends and family to navigate through this difficult period.

Separating from a de facto partner can be a complex and challenging process, both legally and emotionally. Speak to our of our lawyers to obtain appropriate legal advice and support to ensure that the separation is handled as smoothly and amicably as possible.
