Grandparents Rights Ozenkadnook Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Ozenkadnook

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to approve a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for at least 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 Ozenkadnook to be separated however to continue living in the same home during the twelve months, which is known 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 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 appropriate arrangements have actually been made for them.

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

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

Ozenkadnook Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known informally 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 generally allows a personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a considerable amount of money, consisting of the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Ozenkadnook seeking to finalise their responsibilities 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 permanently settle spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide protection to the victim, however 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 definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates 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 people in Ozenkadnook may now be shocked to discover 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 internet 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court along with married couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on an authentic 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 Ozenkadnook.

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