Prenup Dalmore Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Dalmore

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out 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 marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not make an application for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Dalmore to be separated but 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 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 arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out completely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

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

Child Support

You don’t need us to tell you exactly what child assistance is or to get a general idea of what your responsibility (or entitlement) will be.

Nevertheless, the child support system and the formula used to determine child support can be a complex and painful minefield.

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.

Dalmore Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, nevertheless they can be useful:

As a risk management tool for couples seeking prenup Dalmore how they will divide their property if they separate at a later time, it basically enables a personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a considerable amount of money, consisting of the expenses 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 Dalmore looking for to finalise their commitments to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement as to a property settlement).

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 protection 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 children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Dalmore might now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail account or 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 alongside couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on a genuine domestic basis for at least 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 thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Dalmore.

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