Grandparents Rights Nathalia Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Nathalia

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for at least 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 Nathalia to be separated but to continue residing in the same house 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 show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

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

Divorce procedures are carried out completely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to start divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must apply for a divorce.

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

For separated couples in Nathalia 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).

Family violence (likewise 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 accusations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much wider 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many people in Nathalia might now be surprised 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 messages, monitoring their email account or 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court alongside couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on a real 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 Nathalia.

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