Click here to see the article by The West Australian about superannuation being treated the same for married and de-facto (including same sex) couples.
Currently only married couples have superannuation treated like an asset (that can be “split”), where as in de-facto/same sex couples the same superannuation is treated like a financial resource, but not an asset that can be split.
Thankfully there finally seems to be an agreement to rectify this legislative deficiency. lets await the implementation of these family law reforms.
