Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This indicates 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 Ocean Grange to be separated but to continue residing in the very same house during 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 during this time.

Divorce procedures are conducted completely individually from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown.

Monetary arrangements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however they can be useful:

For separated couples in Ocean Grange looking for to settle their obligations to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement regarding a property settlement).

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 offer protection to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any claims of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now encompasses a much larger 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Ocean Grange might now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, 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 identified in the Family Court along with couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on a genuine 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 Ocean Grange.

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