Prenup Richmond Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Richmond

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies a person can not request divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Richmond to be separated however to continue living in the very same house during the twelve months, which is called ‘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 throughout this time.

However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

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 along with couples.

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