Same sex relationships

The Family Law Act 1975 makes no distinction based on the gender of the parties to a de-facto relationship.

In the event of a same sex-relationship breakdown there may be disputes surrounding property and parenting arrangements. The same principles apply to these situations as to a de-facto relationship breakdown.
