DE FACTO LAW - PART VIIIAB
On 1 March 2009 the Family Law Act was amended to provide for financial matters arising out of the breakdown of de facto relationships and other measures.
The Family Law Amendment (De Facto Financial Matters and Other Measures) Act 2008 applies to all States and Territories except Western Australia, as they are yet to refer their power to deal with such matters to the Commonwealth. South Australia referred its de facto powers on 1 July 2010.
Our complete coverage of every aspect of this amendment to the Family Law Act is available to our subscribers at our online Members' Practice News and at our Addendum to The Family Law Book.
The aspects covered include:
Exclusive jurisdiction in de facto financial causes
"De facto relationships"
Part VIIIAB – Financial matters relating to de facto relationships

“This will be really good for teaching lawyers in general practice, junior lawyers and paralegals the role of the family lawyer. Being in one volume is brilliant – it will find itself in constant use, not left on the shelf as can happen with the multi-volumes.”
