The proprietary consequences of loving and living together
Cooper, Donna M. (2004) The proprietary consequences of loving and living together. University of Tasmania Law Review, 23(1), pp. 45-67.
Tasmania has recently followed a strong legislative trend across Australia to elevate the legal rights of heterosexual and same sex de facto couples to the same level as their married counterparts by enacting the Relation-ships Act 2003(Tas). This legislation repealed the De Facto Relationships Act 1999(Tas) which had previously provided a legislative framework for property adjustment for separating de facto cou-ples. Unlike the previous legislation, the Relationships Act applies not only to heterosexual, but also to same sex couples, and provides them with equal rights to their heterosexual counterparts. Moreover, the act expands the rights of de facto couples by providing them with a voluntary process by which they can achieve legal recognition of their relationships.
