Prenup Springfield Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Springfield

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marital relationship 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 means a person can not apply for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Springfield to be separated but to continue residing in the same home throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that correct arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are performed entirely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to begin 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 marital relationship wants to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is very important to be mindful that procedures 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 challenging to acquire.

For separated couples in Springfield looking for to settle 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 known as 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 identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now incorporates a much wider 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 safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Springfield might now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court along with married couples.

In spite of 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 kid, 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 Springfield.

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