Prenup Colbrook Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Colbrook

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court is able 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 should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This indicates a person 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 Colbrook to be separated however to continue residing in the very 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 during this time.

If there are kids aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just approve a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are performed entirely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to start divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should request a divorce.

It is important to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance must 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 tough to get.

Financial arrangements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be helpful:

As a risk management tool for couples seeking prenup Colbrook how they will divide their property if they separate at a later time, it basically enables a private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a substantial amount of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Colbrook seeking to finalise their obligations 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 settle spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (also known 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 claims of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much larger scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many people in Colbrook may now be surprised to find 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 email account or web 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 determined in the Family Court alongside married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited on an authentic 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 Colbrook.

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