Grandparents Rights Notting Hill Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Notting Hill

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out 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 at least twelve months and one day. This means 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 Notting Hill to be separated but to continue residing in the very same home throughout the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just approve a divorce if it is satisfied that correct arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are performed totally separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

It is important to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to get.

For separated couples in Notting Hill looking for to finalise their responsibilities to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement as to a property settlement).

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

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 determined in the Family Court alongside couples.
