Grandparents Rights Reynard Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Reynard

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marital relationship 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 actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This indicates a person can not request divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Reynard to be separated but to continue living in the very same home 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 children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only give a divorce if it is satisfied that correct arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted totally individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must make an application 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.

Evaluations are prepared by the Department based upon a basic formula, but can be altered under various circumstances (up or down) based upon factors such as the expense of maintaining the kid in the way the parents planned (e.g.: private education or extra extracurricular costs), if a child has additional health or medical needs, if a parent is earnings poor but ‘asset rich’, etc. Other situations also apply. The change of assessment process can be complicated and we can help in preparing the required paperwork and preparing you for the road ahead.

Reynard Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, 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 essentially permits a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a considerable sum of money, consisting of the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Reynard 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 monetary agreement can permanently finalise spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also known 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, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for children.

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

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial 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 people in Reynard might now be surprised to find 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 e-mail account or internet web 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 identified in the Family Court alongside married couples.

Regardless of 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 Reynard.

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