De facto Superannuation Splitting

De facto Superannuation Splitting

On 27 November 2019, the Family Law Amendment (WA De Facto Superannuation Splitting & Bankruptcy) Bill 2019 was introduced into the Commonwealth Parliament.

If passed, the Bill will:

  • Accept a referral of powers offered by the WA Parliament for the purpose of making superannuation splitting available to de facto parties in Western Australia; and
  • Enable de facto couples in WA to have bankruptcy matters heard concurrently with their family law proceedings.
