Grandparents Rights Nicholson Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Nicholson

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to approve a divorce if there has actually 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 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 Nicholson to be separated but to continue residing in the very same house throughout the twelve months, which is known as ‘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 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 carried out totally separately from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they must request a divorce.

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

Nicholson Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however they can be helpful:

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 basically permits 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 substantial sum of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Nicholson 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 completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

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

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
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Nicholson may now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, 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 together with married couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on an authentic 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Nicholson.

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