Prenup Scotsburn Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Scotsburn

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 approve 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 should has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means 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 Scotsburn to be separated but to continue living in the very 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 have to prove to the Court that they were separated during this time.

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

Divorce proceedings are carried out totally individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to commence divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should apply for a divorce.

It is essential to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be started 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.

For separated couples in Scotsburn looking for 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 provide protection 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.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now includes 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 causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Scotsburn might 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 messages, monitoring their email account or web browser history.

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 identified in the Family Court together with couples.

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

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 adjustment of property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
