What is Family Law?

Family law includes laws and legal processes related to:

  • De facto relationships (including same sex relationships) and marriage.
  • Binding financial agreements (including prenuptial agreements before marriage or separation agreements) which can be beneficial if you or your spouse has significant assets. You can prepare the main details together, but you each need to get independent legal advice from a separate family lawyer for the agreement to be binding.
  • Legal separation.
  • Divorce.
  • Consent orders and family court orders.
  • Property settlement.
  • Spousal maintenance.
  • Custody of children and recovery orders for children.
  • Child support.
  • Surrogacy.

This includes the Family Law Act and Family Law Rules in Australia.
