Grandparents Rights Nerrina Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Nerrina

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 has the ability to approve 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 must has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This suggests an individual 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 Nerrina to be separated but to continue residing in the same home during the twelve months, which is called ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have 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 only give a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out totally separately 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 any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they must request a divorce.

It is important to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be started 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 get.

Other scenarios also use. The change of evaluation process can be made complex and we can assist in preparing the required documents and preparing you for the road ahead.

Nerrina Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however 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 precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a significant sum of money, including the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Nerrina seeking to finalise 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 (likewise referred to 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 claims of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now includes a much broader scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial 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 Nerrina might now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance determined 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 an authentic 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 Nerrina.

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