Property Settlements in De Facto Relationships

At the end of a De Facto Relationship/Domestic Relationship, you may need to divide the assets. These assets can include the family home, investment properties, interest in a business, shares and bank accounts. In determining what proportion of assets are divided, many factors are taken into account. They include:-

  • The assets that you and your partner brought into the relationship.
  • The assets and liabilities which have accumulated during the period of the relationship.
  • The direct and indirect financial contributions of the parties.
  • The non-financial contributions to the relationship.
