Spousal maintenance is financial support that is paid by one spouse to the other and is used to help maintain the standard of living that was enjoyed during the marriage.
The amount of spousal maintenance that is payable will depend on a number of factors, including the needs of the spouse and the ability of the other spouse to pay. Maintenance is not always payable, and it is not always payable for life.

Orders can be put in place or existing orders can be updated to make sure that parental responsibility of a child or children is protected.
The Family Law Act stipulates the best interests of the child as the most important consideration when deciding on a child’s living arrangements to be made when parents separate. In most cases, it is in the best interests of the child to spend equal time with both parents.
What is Parental Responsibility?
If you and your partner have recently separated or you are thinking about separating and you have children, there are several decisions you need to make to ensure your children’s welfare is not at risk. This includes:
The Best interests of the child is the most important factor to be considered when making decisions regarding children. It is in a child’s best interests that:
It is also in a child’s best interests that their parents cooperate with each other and communicate openly to resolve any differences they may have regarding the care of their children. If parents cannot agree on parenting arrangements, then they may need to seek the assistance of a family law mediation service or through the Court process.
If you have been in a De-facto relationship and you are now separated then talk to our team today about sorting out your parenting plans and financial asset division.
We can advise you on what constitutes a de facto relationship in the eyes of the law and your rights with respect to property, maintenance and children in the event of a relationship breakdown.
A de facto relationship is defined by the Family Law Act as a couple who are not married but live together on a genuine domestic basis. In order to be considered to be in a de facto relationship, you must have lived together for at least two years or had a child together.
A couple can be of the same or opposite sex and does not need to have registered their relationship with the state or territory in which they live.
De facto relationships are treated similarly to marriages under Australian law, which means that couples who separate after living together in a de facto relationship have the same property rights as married couples. This includes the right to seek a property settlement from the Court.
De facto couples also have the same maintenance rights as married couples, which means that they can seek financial support from their former partner if they are unable to support themselves financially.
Finally, de facto couples also have the same parental responsibility rights as married couples with respect to their children. This means that they can both make decisions about their children’s education, healthcare and welfare.
If you are in a de facto relationship and are thinking about separating, then you should contact us to discuss your legal rights and options. We can assist you with negotiating a property settlement and applying for maintenance, as well as advise you on your parental responsibility rights.
