Grandparents Rights Oak Park Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Oak Park

Australian Law operates on the principle 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 actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This suggests an individual can not make an application for divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Oak Park to be separated but to continue residing in the very same house throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘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 throughout this time.

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

Divorce procedures are performed completely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should request a divorce.

It is necessary to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to acquire.

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

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened 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.

Many individuals in Oak Park may now be surprised to discover 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 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.
