Only dedicated, experienced, specialist family law lawyers will have the conduct of your matter!

We do not delegate your important matters to articled clerks or para-legals like some firms do. We have never believed in this as it simply duplicates work and increases costs.

De facto couples who separate after 1 December 2002 are entitled to the same property and maintenance rights as married couples.

De facto couples can apply to the Family Court of Western Australia for Orders in relation to the property where:

  1. they have been in a de facto relationship for at least two years;
  2. the parties resided in Western Australia for at least one third of the relationship; and
  3. one party resides in Western Australia when the application is filed in the Family Court.

A de facto relationship is defined as a relationship between two people who live together in a marriage-like relationship. There are indicators of a relationship which the Court may require to be satisfied and it can be a heterosexual or same sex relationship.

We will help you to ensure you have the very best chance of success.

Any application for alteration of property interests by de facto couples must be filed at the Family Court of Western Australia within two years of separation. For married couples an application for alteration of property interests must be filed within 12 months of the parties’ divorce becoming absolute.
