De facto separations aren’t always easy
In fact, they can often be just as (if not even even more) complex than divorce cases.
When a de facto relationship ends, both parties may have to divide their assets between them and make financial concessions to each other, just as with cases of divorce.
The difference is that unlike marriages, these arrangements and rights often aren’t formalised in de facto relationships.
This can lead to even greater uncertainty when the relationship comes to an end.
Bring clarity to your case and move onto the next phase of your life without stress. The right legal advice ensures you make the right calls, and eases your return to single life.
De facto separation FAQs
Divorce is challenging, but at least you know where you stand when it comes to your assets and legal rights. Many de facto relationships aren’t that clear cut.
We understand the need for clarity in these situations. If you’ve experienced a breakdown in your de facto relationship, it’s important to seek out advice as soon as possible.
De facto separation advice you can actually understand
The lines in a de facto relationship can be blurry. As if it wasn’t confusing enough already, this advice is often blanketed in legal phrasing.
Jargon. Legal terminology. Confusing clauses.
Each of these can hinder your ability to separate on good terms, and can make it hard to understand what you’re entitled to, as well as the most equitable way to divide your combined assets.
Just because you aren’t officially married doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared.
With the right legal advice and support, you’ll be able to start over again with minimal stress and financial strain.
