Prenup Docklands Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Docklands

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 give a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This suggests an individual can not apply for divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Docklands to be separated however to continue living in the 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 throughout this time.

Divorce procedures are performed completely individually from other proceedings between the couple 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 need to apply for a divorce.

For separated couples in Docklands seeking to finalise their responsibilities 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 security 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 children.

  •  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 safety or wellbeing.

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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court alongside couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on a real 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Docklands.
