Grandparents Rights Pootilla Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Pootilla

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

It is possible for a couple in Pootilla to be separated however to continue living in the very same house throughout 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 kids 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 proceedings are conducted entirely individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage 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 need to be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to get.

Pootilla Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (also known informally 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 allows a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a substantial amount of money, including the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Pootilla looking for 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 completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also known 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 meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened 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 causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many people in Pootilla 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 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court along with married 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 a minimum of 2 years (or less if they have a kid, 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 Pootilla.

De facto partners must not fear that they should walk away 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.
