Prenup Collingwood Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Collingwood

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. 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 means a person can not request divorce till the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Collingwood to be separated however to continue living in the 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 prove to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

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

Divorce proceedings are conducted totally individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they should make an application for a divorce.

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

Child Support

You do not need us to inform you what child assistance is or to get a basic concept of what your obligation (or entitlement) will be.

There is a fast children support estimator on the website of the Department of Human Services Child Support (” the Department”) which you can use.

However, the child support system and the formula used to determine child assistance can be a complex and painful minefield. We can assist you with some of the lesser known areas and complexities, and assist you to strategically plan your child support plans and commitments for the future to guarantee the very best possible arrangement is in place offered your and the other moms and dads circumstances.

Some areas that Our Family Law Collingwood can help you with consist of:

Advising you regarding your options concerning child support which may consist of arranging a personal child assistance arrangement, in either a minimal or binding child support agreement.

Private arrangements supply certainty for both moms and dads for a longer period of time (no continuous reassessments each year or more), enable greater versatility 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 eliminate the need to handle the administration of the Department.

The change of evaluation procedure can be complicated and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Collingwood Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

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

As a risk management tool for couples seeking prenup Collingwood how they will divide their property if they separate at a later time, it generally enables a private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a significant 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 coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Collingwood 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 monetary agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now encompasses a much broader scope of behaviours such as:

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

Many individuals in Collingwood may now be surprised 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 messages, monitoring their email account or internet 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 together with married couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on an authentic 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) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Collingwood.

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