Grandparents Rights Sheep Hills Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Sheep Hills

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

It is possible for a couple in Sheep Hills to be separated but to continue living in the exact same home 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 show to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just give a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have actually been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out totally individually from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they need to make an application for a divorce.

It is necessary to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to obtain.

Sheep Hills Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, 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 basically allows a personal agreement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, including the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Sheep Hills seeking to settle their responsibilities 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 obligations.

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 protection 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 abuse) was broadened 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 individual and triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Sheep Hills may now be shocked to discover 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 messages, 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 determined in the Family Court alongside married couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited on a genuine 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) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Sheep Hills.

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