The point at which a relationship becomes a de facto relationship can be difficult to identify.

At Klimek & Wijay, our lawyers can offer you advice in relation to the characteristics the Family Court will look at when determining whether a de facto relationship exists.

According to the law, de facto couples have available to them the same remedies as married couples except in relation to superannuation, which cannot be split in Western Australia.

The Family Court treats children of de facto relationships no differently from children of married couples with respect to making orders as to where they live, what time they spend with each parent, child support and other specific arrangements.
