Prenuptial Agreement Lyons VIC

Prenuptial Agreement Lyons Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Lyons

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

It is possible for a couple in Lyons to be separated but to continue living 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 have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

If there are kids 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 performed completely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should request a divorce.

It is necessary to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to acquire.
