Grandparents Rights Roslynmead Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Roslynmead

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to approve a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means an individual can not apply for divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Roslynmead to be separated but to continue residing in the 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 have 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 grant a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted totally separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown.

Monetary agreements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be useful:

Family Violence

Family violence (also called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer 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 kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now incorporates 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 Roslynmead 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, monitoring their e-mail account or internet 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court together with couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on a genuine domestic basis for at least 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 unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Roslynmead.

De facto spouses should not fear that they need to leave 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 married couple.
