Grandparents Rights Robinvale Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Robinvale

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to give 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 suggests an individual can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

If the couple is separated under the one roof they need 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 approve a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have actually been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are performed entirely individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should request 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 period with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to acquire.

Robinvale Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, nevertheless 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 generally allows a private arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a substantial sum of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Robinvale seeking to settle their obligations 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 responsibilities.

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 provide security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any claims of domestic violence into consideration when determining 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 larger 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 security or wellbeing.

Many people in Robinvale may now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail account or web 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 together with 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 residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Robinvale.

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