Prenup Basalt Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Basalt

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to grant 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 at least twelve months and one day. This implies an individual can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Basalt to be separated but to continue residing in the exact same house throughout the twelve months, which is referred to 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 children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only approve 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 commitment on a party to start divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is important to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is challenging to obtain.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer protection 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 kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened 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 security or wellbeing.

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 along with couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on an authentic domestic basis for at least 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 Basalt.

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