Grandparents Rights Rippleside Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Rippleside

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

It is possible for a couple in Rippleside to be separated but to continue residing in the same home during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to prove to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

If there are kids aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out completely individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they should request a divorce.

It is very important to be aware that proceedings 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 challenging to get.

Rippleside Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, nevertheless 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 prevents the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a substantial amount 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 or life insurance.

For separated couples in Rippleside seeking to settle their commitments 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 settle spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (also referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer security to the victim, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded 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 person and triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Rippleside may now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail account or internet 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 cohabited on a genuine domestic basis for at least 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 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 Rippleside.

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