Divorce or Separation from your partner can be an extremely traumatic experience, not only for the parties involved but also for any children of the relationship. It is essential that your family law representative understands your situation and provides you with clear practical advice.
All Family Law disputes such as divorce, separation, child custody, child support and property settlements are regulated by the Family Law Act 1975. Disputes involving defacto and same sex couples are also regulated by this Act except in respect to property and financial disputes between defacto couples who separated prior to 1st March 2009 and who are residents in New South Wales. Their property and financial disputes are regulated by the Property (Relationships) Act 1984 (NSW). For more information see the guide below titled "De Facto Legislation - How it affects you".
