Unlike married couples, de facto partners cannot apply for a divorce when their relationship breaks down. Their property affairs and arrangements for the future care of their children however may be finalised by agreement, with the assistance of their legal advisors or, if necessary through Family Court proceedings. If you are separating from a de facto partner, it is important to be aware of how a de facto relationship is defined and how the Act applies.
