Custody Lawyers Wangaratta Forward Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Wangaratta Forward

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to give a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies an individual can not make an application for divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Wangaratta Forward to be separated but to continue residing in the same home during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need to prove to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

If there are kids aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only approve a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are performed entirely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they need to apply for a divorce.

It is very important to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to get.

Other circumstances also apply. The modification of assessment procedure can be complicated and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Wangaratta Forward Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however they can be useful:

As a risk management tool for couples seeking to pre-arrange how they will divide their property if they separate at a later time, it basically allows a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a substantial sum of money, consisting of the expenses connected with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Wangaratta Forward seeking to finalise their responsibilities to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement as to a property settlement). Unlike court orders in the context of spousal maintenance, a financial agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also known as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now includes a much broader scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Wangaratta Forward might now be surprised to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email account or web web browser history.

De Facto Relationships

In March 2009 a brand-new day dawned for de facto relationships, provided the couple separated after 1 March 2009, they were entitled to have their claim for a residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court along with married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited on an authentic domestic basis for a minimum of 2 years (or less if they have a kid, registered their relationship under the law of the State or one made a significant contribution to the residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Wangaratta Forward.

De facto partners should not fear that they need to walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the adjustment of residential or commercial property and financial backing, in very much the same way as a couple.
