WA de facto family law superannuation splitting: legislative instrument 

As reported in ASFA Action issue 868, the Western Australian (WA) Parliament recently passed legislation relevant to efforts to allow separating WA de facto couples to access the family law superannuation splitting regime.  

That legislation, the Family Court Amendment Act 2022  (WA), has not yet been proclaimed to commence. Proclamation of the relevant provisions will be aligned with the proclamation of related amendments in the Commonwealth Family Law Amendment (Western Australia De Facto Superannuation Splitting and Bankruptcy) Act 2020  and the commencement of the Commonwealth Superannuation Legislation Amendment (Western Australia De Facto Superannuation Splitting) Regulations 2021  (Commonwealth Regulations).  

The Commonwealth Government has now registered an additional legislative instrument relevant to these reforms.  

The Family Law (Superannuation) (Methods and Factors for Valuing Particular Superannuation Interests) Amendment (No. 2) Approval 2022  (Cth) amends the Family Law (Superannuation) (Methods and Factors for Valuing Particular Superannuation Interests) Approval 2003 (Cth) to ensure that references to the Family Law Act 1975 are correct. This is necessary to reflect the inclusion in the Family Law Act of specific provisions dealing with family law superannuation splits in relation to WA de facto couples. 
The instrument will commence immediately after the commencement of the Commonwealth Regulations.
