Defacto Relationships

A de facto relationship can be defined in a number of ways and can exist in a number of circumstances.

It is not always the case that the parties need to have lived together for two years to establish that they were in fact in a de facto relationship. The Court can look to several factors to establish that a de facto relationship did exist. What classifies as a de facto relationship may vary from couple to couple.

It is necessary to establish whether you are in a de facto relationship, to determine what your rights are for property settlement.
