Grandparents Rights South Wharf Divorce And Separation Lawyers In South Wharf

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

It is possible for a couple in South Wharf to be separated but to continue living in the very 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 need to show to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

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

Divorce procedures are carried out entirely individually from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should apply for a divorce.

It is necessary to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to acquire.

Personal arrangements offer certainty for both moms and dads for a longer amount of time (no continuous reassessments each year or more), enable higher flexibility in the approach of payment (direct funding in periodic or lump sums, or payment of educational, medical and extracurricular costs in part or in lieu), and remove the need to handle the bureaucracy of the Department.

Other circumstances also apply. The change of assessment procedure can be made complex and we can assist in preparing the required paperwork and preparing you for the road ahead.

South Wharf Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however 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 personal agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable amount of money, including the costs associated 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 South Wharf looking for to settle their responsibilities 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 monetary agreement can permanently finalise 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 provide security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) 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 individual and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in South Wharf may now be shocked 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 messages, monitoring their email account or web 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court alongside married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on a real domestic basis for a minimum of 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law South Wharf.

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