If you are involved in a family court jurisdiction matter and need to understand the criteria that courts use to decide if your relationship is a de facto relationship, the Applicant Relationship Letter will be of interest to you. Our letter outlines the approach taken by an Applicant after a relationship has ceased.
In our draft letter, the Applicant is seeking a property adjustment or settlement under the Family Court Act and the Respondent is denying that a de facto relationship existed. Instead, asserting there was a romantic relationship in order to block the Applicants rights to a property adjustment or settlement.
The letter is carefully crafted to highlight how the Applicant will seek to prove the relationship and uses strategies your solicitor may employ.
