What is Family Law?
Family law affects each and every Australian adult in some form or another. Generally speaking, parties who have had children or who have lived together as a married couple or in a de facto relationship have rights and obligations that have an impact on their financial, estate and succession planning. More often than not the parties will have lived together for a significant period of time and their accrued rights may form the basis of the one and only significant opportunity for a financial settlement in their lifetime.
Family law can be divided into rights and obligations relating to financial matters or children. For financial matters, rights and obligations may relate to a property settlement, spousal maintenance, child support or child maintenance. For children matters, rights and obligations extend to custody, access, residence, parental responsibility, paternity, surrogacy, financial support and the care, welfare and development of the children.
