Family Law

Same-Sex Relationships

At Swan Family Lawyers, we support and promote diversity.

In 2017, we were pleased to celebrate the introduction of marriage equality into Australian law. The amendment included provision for marriages that occurred prior to 9 December 2017 and foreign marriages.

Prior to this, same-sex de facto relationships were recognised as equal to their heterosexual counterparts under the Family Law Act. This remains true.

Each relationship is unique and the approach which should be taken will vary. Our team are equipped with the skills, knowledge and respect to assist you with concerns that arise out of a same-sex relationship including parenting and child support, financial agreements, property settlement and maintenance.

Call us now on 8227 1970 and we will chat with you over the phone, free of charge.
