Custody Lawyers Waranga Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Waranga

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to approve a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means a person can not make an application for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Waranga to be separated however to continue living in the very same house throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘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 just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out entirely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is important to be conscious 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 obtain.

Financial agreements (also known colloquially 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 generally permits a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, consisting of the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Waranga looking for to finalise their commitments 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 monetary agreement can permanently finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

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

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now encompasses a much wider 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 security or wellbeing.

Many people in Waranga may now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their email account or internet 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 identified in the Family Court along with couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on a real 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 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 Waranga.

De facto spouses must not fear that they should walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes special provision for the modification of residential or commercial property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
