Grandparents Rights Myrrhee Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Myrrhee

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended.

If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to prove to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

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

Divorce procedures are conducted totally separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife 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.

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

It can be compared with income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Myrrhee seeking to settle their obligations 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 financial agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise 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, 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 assault) was widened in late 2012 and now includes 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 individual and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Myrrhee might now be surprised 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, monitoring their email account or 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 married couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited on a genuine domestic basis for at least 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 Myrrhee.

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