Custody Lawyers Wonyip Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Wonyip

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court is able to give a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually 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 apply for divorce till the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Wonyip to be separated however to continue living in the same home 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 during this time.

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

Divorce procedures are performed entirely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to start divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is important to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to acquire.

Wonyip Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be beneficial:

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 essentially allows a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable sum of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Wonyip looking for to settle 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 permanently settle spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (also known 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 claims of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates 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 safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Wonyip may now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail 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 together 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 child, 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 considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Wonyip.

De facto partners should not fear that they need to 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.
