Grandparents Rights Neilborough Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Neilborough

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

It is possible for a couple in Neilborough to be separated but to continue living 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 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 proper plans have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out entirely individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is very important to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to acquire.

Neilborough Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, 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 personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable amount of money, consisting of the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Neilborough 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 permanently settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only 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 identifying future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was expanded in late 2012 and now encompasses a much larger 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.

Lots of people in Neilborough might now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email account or internet 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 identified in the Family Court alongside 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 kid, 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) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Neilborough.

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