Grandparents Rights Pinewood Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Pinewood

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 been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not make an application for divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Pinewood to be separated but to continue living in the exact 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 have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

Divorce proceedings are carried out totally individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife 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 marital relationship wants to re-marry they need to apply for a divorce.

It is very important to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is challenging to get.

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

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now includes 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.
