Grandparents Rights Outtrim Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Outtrim

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 is able to approve a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This indicates a person can not make an application for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Outtrim to be separated but to continue residing in the very same house throughout 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 during this time.

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

Divorce proceedings are carried out totally individually from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they need to apply for a divorce.

It is very 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 tough to obtain.

Outtrim Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

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

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 generally enables a personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a significant amount of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Outtrim looking for to settle 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 monetary agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was widened in late 2012 and now encompasses a much wider scope of behaviours such as:

  •  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 safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Outtrim might now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail account or internet 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court along with couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on a genuine 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 residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Outtrim.

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