How long were you together and how long ago did you separate.
In WA if the action is started there he cannot have ay of your superannuation as a defacto. The law in WA is the only one that does this. If he starts in another state then your super can be at risk but the time together and when you separated ins important. If you have been apart for more than 2 years he is out of time to do anything.

It is where you start the proceedings that matters. Then you are covered by the laws of that jurisdiction.
All states have the same laws except for WA which excludes superannuation for the split. The other states include the superannuation.
