Restraining Order Beechworth VIC

Restraining Order Beechworth Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Beechworth

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to approve 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 needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This suggests an individual can not apply for divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Beechworth to be separated but to continue residing in the very same house throughout the twelve months, which is referred to 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 throughout this time.

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

Divorce proceedings are conducted completely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must request a divorce.

It is very important to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to obtain.

Beechworth Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be helpful:

As a risk management tool for couples seeking to pre-arrange how they will divide their property if they separate at a later time, it generally permits a private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a significant sum of money, including the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Beechworth seeking to finalise their commitments to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement regarding a property settlement). Unlike court orders in the context of spousal maintenance, a monetary agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide security to the victim, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning 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
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Beechworth may now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail account or internet browser history.

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 along with couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have 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 residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Beechworth.

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