De Facto Relationships: Not as Clear Cut as You Think

In de facto property proceedings often the court must first determine the initial question of whether the claimed de facto relationship existed. This is done by reference to the definition of de facto relationship, and the list of relevant criteria, in Family Law Act 1975 (FLA), s 4AA, and the outcome in any particular case is by no means certain.  In this program, Jacob Clancy, from Clancy & Triado in Melbourne: reviews the case law; identifies the attitude of the courts to the FLA provisions; the evidential hurdles facing applicants and respondents; and the risk for both parties in pursuing such proceedings without adequate evidence.
