Cohabitation Agreements and Cohabitation Disputes

Financial (Cohabitation) Agreements

Under section 90UC of the Act de facto couples can now make a financial agreement that will protect their assets and financial resources, in the same way married couples have been able to since 2000. By making an agreement now, you can quarantine certain assets from litigation during a property settlement, which can have a surprisingly positive effect on how secure one might feel in the relationship. Particularly if one partner has significant assets and the other does not.

Your financial agreement allows you to decide what you think would be a fair and equitable distribution of property in the event of separation instead of leaving it up to the courts. You can choose to deal with all of your financial interest now or you may choose to deal with a single asset like a family farm, a business or an inheritance.

Financial agreements can comfort and reassure people living in or entering into de facto relationships. They are recognised and enforceable under Part VIIIAB of the Family Law Act.

Does living with someone give you the same rights as a married couple?

Until Recently you could choose to live with your partner and not be married which may provide benefits for some and disadvantages for others. Changes to the Family Law Act which came into effect on the 1st March 2009 allow de facto couples to make application to the Family court for orders in respect of the division of property (property settlement) and maintenance for couples in a de facto relationship.

This means that even though a couple may not be legally married there is no discernible difference in the rights of the couple under the law, in a relationship of sufficient duration or where children are involved. The new laws apply to both hetero and same sex couples alike.

Cohabitation Agreements

You should give careful thought as to what rights and obligations are expected from the relationship from the outset.

For example, if you intend that you should both have an equal share in your house should you split, you will need to get a lawyer to draw up a Trust Deed or Cohabitation Agreement.

A lawyer solicitor can also discuss with you the merits of a Cohabitation Agreement.  Cohabitation Agreements can help couples think about what is to happen if their relationship ends and can set down common intentions, particularly with regard to financial and property matters.

Another important consideration for unmarried couples is to make Wills to ensure that on death their wishes are taken into account.  If no Will is in force, the rules that apply are unlikely to achieve what was intended.

What about same sex partnerships?

It is now possible for same sex couples who are unable to marry to register their partnership.

In these instances, if the relationship breaks down and a financial agreement cannot be reached, either party will be able to make an application to the Court.  The Judge will be able to make a range of financial orders which will be similar in nature to those orders made within matrimonial proceedings for married couples.

Basically, then, the law relating to cohabitation both for same sex and different sex couples is complex; you should seek legal guidance, preferably, at the time you enter into the relationship to avoid the complications that can arise if things don’t work out.

(c)  the agreement is expressed to be made under this section;

the agreement is a Part VIIIAB financial agreement. The parties to the de facto relationship may make the Part VIIIAB financial agreement with one or more other people.

(2)  The matters referred to in paragraph (1)(a) are the following:

(b)  the maintenance of either of the spouse parties.

It can be difficult to adjust to your new circumstances and this can impact on your mental health.

Worrying about the impact of relationship breakdown, separation and divorce on children can add to the stress of the situation.

There are a range of services available which provide assistance and support to those experiencing relationship breakdown, separation and divorce. Family Relationship Centres are a first port of call for families seeking help. Through information and referral, the centres help families strengthen relationships and deal with relationship difficulties.

Changes to Australia's family law system introduced since July 2006 means that individuals wanting to apply to the court for a parenting order must first attempt family dispute resolution if appropriate. If family dispute resolution is not appropriate or an agreement not reached then a certificate can be obtained from a registered family dispute resolution practitioner confirming an attempt at family dispute resolution was made.

Note: There are some exceptions to this requirement, such as cases involving family violence or child abuse.

Family Relationship centres can also refer individuals, couples and families to a range of other helpful services to enhance family relationships.
