Grandparents Rights Noojee Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Noojee

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to grant 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 needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means a person can not request divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Noojee to be separated but to continue living in the same home 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 throughout this time.

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

Divorce proceedings are conducted completely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to commence divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they should apply for a divorce.

It is necessary to be aware that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to obtain.

  •  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.

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 identified in the Family Court along with couples.
