Grandparents Rights Paradise Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Paradise

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This means an individual can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Paradise to be separated but to continue living in the same house during the twelve months, which is known as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need to prove 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 actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted completely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to commence divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should make an application for a divorce.

It is very important 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 duration with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to acquire.

Paradise Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however they can be useful:

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 basically enables a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a considerable sum of money, consisting of the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Paradise seeking to settle their responsibilities to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement as to a property settlement). Unlike court orders in the context of spousal maintenance, a financial agreement can permanently finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

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

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

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Paradise might now be surprised to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email account or 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 identified in the Family Court alongside married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together 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 residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Paradise.

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