 Recorded Webinar: Here for a Good Time but Not a Long Time: Family Law and Later in Life Relationships

Date: Tuesday 4th April 2023
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

Second and later marriages, late-in-life relationships and blended families have given rise to unique and complex family law issues when the relationship both starts and ends. This session will examine some of the more common issues and provide a guide to what practitioners should be advising their clients in these circumstances, including:

  • Drafting considerations in pre-nuptial binding financial agreements for an older couple
  • How enforceable is a binding financial arrangement where one party becomes incapacitated?
  • Can a de facto relationship arise where the parties live separately?
  • What is the impact of one party going into aged care? Is this a separation for the purposes of family law?
  • How does the court view short but later in life relationships? Are there any trends in property adjustments in these situations?
  • Dealing with conflicts between estate planning arrangements and family law settlements
  • Recent cases
