FAMILY LAW ACT 1975 - SECT 90XX

**Multiple payment splits applying to the same splittable payment**
(1) This section applies if 2 or more payment splits apply to
the same splittable payment.

(2) The payments splits are to be calculated in order of their
operative times, starting with the earliest time.

(3) For the purpose of calculating each of those payment splits
(other than the one with the earliest operative time), the amount of the
splittable payment is taken to be reduced by the amount to which a person
other than the member spouse is entitled under the payment split with the next
earlier operative time.

Example 1: W has a superannuation interest that is subject to 3
payment splits in respect of W's marriages to X, Y and Z (in that order).
The operative times of the payment splits are in the same order as the
marriages. Assume each payment split provides for a 50% share to the non -
member spouse. W becomes entitled to a splittable payment of $100. The final
payment entitlements are as follows: X gets $50. Y gets $25. Z gets $12.50. W
gets the remaining $12.50.

Example 2: W has a superannuation interest that is subject to 3
payment splits in respect of W's de facto
relationship with X, W's marriage to Y and W's de facto
relationship with Z (in that order). The operative times of the
payment splits are in the same order as the relationships. Assume each
payment split provides for a 50% share to the non - member spouse. W becomes
entitled to a splittable payment of $100. The final payment entitlements are
as follows: X gets $50. Y gets $25. Z gets $12.50. W gets the remaining
$12.50.
