Hello there,I have questions surrounding the defacto area. We are not married and he would like us to live to gether. What timeframe of living together determines the defacto status in NSW? My second question where can i find information relating to having to report this to Centrelink as in what impact it has on my financial situation and his financial situation if we live together?
Your information would be most helpful and appreciated.
to answer your questions;- Once you start living together as man and wife you are considered to be in a defacto relationship. Your rights to bring a claim for a property settlement only arise generally after 2 years living together, unless there are children or some other special circumstance.
Regarding Centrelink, you can find out whatever information you want by calling them, you don't need to give your name. I would add that living together in a defacto relationship would be a change of circumstance that you must notify Centrelink about

Bella babe..I am not a solicitor and not legally trained so do not take thefollowing as legal advice. It is just my opinion.
You and your ex....are technically co-landlords of that home. As he rented this home out you would be entitled to at least half the rent accrued on that property. This is a general view of course and it would be better for you to see a solicitor
