Tiyce & Lawyers is proud to introduce a weekly information session on family law for the public.
These obligation-free sessions are designed to make family law accessible, and to provide essential information from our team of expert solicitors to help people understand their rights and obligations in a family law matter.
Our recent ‘Fractured Fairy Tale’ ads on SmoothFM have had a great response!

Many couples in same-sex relationships have little understanding of their rights to assets or income should they separate. Some people assume:
- they did not have any rights whereas in fact they did;
- they had to pay their ex-partner money after separation whereas in fact they did not have to;
- the whole issue of property settlements is only for ‘married people’.
Below is a general overview of property rights for same-sex couples in the event of separation.
In the quest for marriage equality, many couples are holding off taking formal steps to recognise their relationship until full marriage equality is achieved, potentially causing themselves and their loved ones untold grief.
