Prenuptial Agreement Kerrie VIC

Prenuptial Agreement Kerrie Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Kerrie

Australian Law operates on the principle 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 marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means an individual can not request divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Kerrie to be separated however to continue living in the same home during the twelve months, which is known 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 approve a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out entirely individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should request a divorce.

Family violence (likewise 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 accusations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened in late 2012 and now encompasses a much broader scope of behaviours such as:

  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour

  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

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

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on a real 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Kerrie.
