Restraining Order Benambra Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Benambra

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to approve a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has 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 up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Benambra to be separated but to continue living in the same house throughout the twelve months, which is known 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.

Divorce proceedings are conducted totally separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to start divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must apply for a divorce.

Benambra Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, nevertheless they can be beneficial:

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 basically enables a private arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a significant sum of money, including the expenses connected with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

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

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 offer security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any claims 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 incorporates a much broader scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Benambra may now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail account or internet 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 along with married 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 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 Benambra.

De facto spouses must not fear that they must leave empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes special provision for the change of property and financial backing, in very much the same way as a couple.
