SAME SEX RELATIONSHIPS

Family Lawyers

In 2008, the Australian Commonwealth Government amended the Family Law Act to allow same-sex couples exactly the same rights as heterosexual De Facto couples, both during relationships and in the event of a separation.

This means that a same-sex couple can now be recognised as a De Facto couple, in every legal, practical and emotional sense and with the same rights and legal options, as long as they meet the legal definition of a De facto relationship.

A same-sex De Facto separation will be just as emotional and stressful as a divorce at the end of a marriage, and it will raise many similar legal issues, including division of assets and property and the custody of children. The law requires all separation cases to begin with mediation and negotiation, but some couples may not be able to reach an agreement this way, so that their case has to go to the Family Court or the Federal Circuit Court.

At Diamond Conway, we have many years of experience in handling separations and our team includes an accredited specialist in Family Law. We offer compassionate legal advice and skilled support, no matter how far your separation case needs to go to reach a fair outcome.
