Prenup Pearcedale Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Pearcedale

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider 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 a person can not make an application for divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Pearcedale to be separated but to continue residing in the exact same home during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need 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 grant a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out totally separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they need to apply for a divorce.

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

Child Support

You don’t need us to inform you what child assistance is or to get a basic concept of what your commitment (or entitlement) will be.

There is a fast children assistance 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 compute child support can be a complex and painful minefield. We can assist you with a few of the lesser known areas and complexities, and assist you to tactically prepare your child support plans and responsibilities for the future to ensure the very best possible plan remains in place offered your and the other moms and dads situations.

Assisting In Steps To Recover Unsettled Child Support In Pearcedale

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

Pearcedale Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, nevertheless they can be useful:

As a risk management tool for couples seeking prenup Pearcedale how they will divide their property if they separate at a later time, it generally allows a personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a substantial amount of money, including the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Pearcedale looking for 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).

Family Violence

Family violence (also called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only 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 kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now includes a much broader 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 triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Pearcedale may now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their email account or internet 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 married couples.

Regardless of 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 considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Pearcedale.

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