  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

In March 2009 a brand-new day dawned for de facto relationships, provided the couple separated after 1 March 2009, they were entitled to have their claim for a property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court together with married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on a genuine domestic basis for a minimum of 2 years (or less if they have a child, registered their relationship under the law of the State or one made a significant contribution to the residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Elmore.
