About the Webinar

The Family Law Act sets quite strict time limits within which separated parties must commence property settlement proceedings. But what options are available when that time limit has already passed? How late is too late? And does it matter why? This session will explore:

  • The legal requirements of s.44 of the Family Law Act and the circumstances in which the court has authority to consider out of time applications
  • How the law has been applied in recent cases, focusing on the facts in matters which supported a finding of hardship in favour of the applicant
  • Practical tips on running and defending out of time applications in practice
