Custody Lawyers Weerite Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Weerite

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

It is possible for a couple in Weerite to be separated but to continue residing in the exact same house throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

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

Divorce procedures are performed completely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should request a divorce.

It is essential to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to obtain.

Weerite Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, nevertheless 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 allows a private arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a significant sum of money, consisting of the expenses 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 Weerite seeking to finalise their responsibilities to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement regarding a property settlement). Unlike court orders in the context of spousal maintenance, a monetary agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

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

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was widened in late 2012 and now encompasses a much larger scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Weerite may now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out 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 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 alongside married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on an authentic domestic basis for a minimum of 2 years (or less if they have a child, 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 Weerite.

De facto partners must not fear that they must leave empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the adjustment of property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
