De Facto Property Settlement

De facto property settlements address the division of assets and liabilities when a de facto relationship ends. These relationships may involve property, financial resources, and other shared assets that need equitable distribution. The Family Law Act governs such settlements, with considerations similar to those in marital property settlements. Same-sex couples are now considered de facto relationships. 


Our experienced Defacto Property Settlement Lawyers at Simonidis Steel Lawyers specialise in guiding clients through this complex legal process. The steps that need to be considered are as follows: 


  • Identifying and valuing the assets and liabilities owned by both parties in the relationship. 
  • Deliberating on each party’s financial and non-financial contributions to the relationship. 
  • Evaluating each party’s future requirements. 
  • Establishing an order that is just and equitable. 

Simonidis Steel Lawyers can assist you in identifying pertinent factors in your case and provide insight into an equitable settlement. Additionally, we provide practical and realistic recommendations in order to expedite settlement. Given the time constraints, we advise seeking legal counsel promptly. Before starting any court proceedings, it is advisable to make a genuine attempt to resolve your property dispute.
