Grandparents Rights North Warrandyte Divorce And Separation Lawyers In North Warrandyte

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 has the ability to approve a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship 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 till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in North Warrandyte to be separated but to continue residing in the 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 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 approve a divorce if it is satisfied that proper plans have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are conducted totally separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

It is very important to be aware 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 period with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to acquire.

North Warrandyte Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, 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 essentially allows a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a considerable amount of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in North Warrandyte looking for to finalise their commitments 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 finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any claims of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for kids.

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

Many individuals in North Warrandyte 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, monitoring their e-mail account or web 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 determined in the Family Court alongside married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited on a real domestic basis for a minimum of 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 thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law North Warrandyte.

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