Same-Sex Couples

Same-Sex Couples

The Same Rules Apply

The answer is yes, Australian family law rules apply equally to same sex couples.

Australian family law allows those separating from a same-sex relationship to seek property and financial settlements in the same Court through the same processes as a heterosexual married couple, and current laws allow same-sex couples to apply to the Child Support Agency for either limited or binding child support agreements.


We have extensive experience in same-sex couple separation and can advise you on the most efficient way to wrap up your joint affairs, no matter how complex they are.
