Grandparents Rights Shallow Inlet Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Shallow Inlet

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 has the ability to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This means a person can not apply for divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

Divorce proceedings are performed entirely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown.

Shallow Inlet Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however they can be helpful:

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 precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a substantial sum of money, including the expenses connected with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Shallow Inlet seeking to finalise their commitments 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 permanently finalise spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

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

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now includes 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 person and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Shallow Inlet may now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their email account or 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court alongside 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 residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Shallow Inlet.

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