Family Law

Are homemaker and parental duties considered as non-financial contributions?

Published in: September 2016

The Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) (the Act) requires the court to take into account contributions made in the capacity of parent and homemaker as outlined in s 79(4)(c), and s 90SM(4)(c) for de facto relationships. Some of the considerations that may be taken into account include cleaning, cooking and raising children just to name a few non-financial contribution examples that may be considered.

It should also be noted that the homemaker and parental contribution considerations can also apply to men as well. Therefore, labour involving home improvements can also be seen as non-financial contributions, especially if it leads to an increase in the value of property.
