Restraining Order Bentleigh Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Bentleigh

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out 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 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 request divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Bentleigh to be separated however to continue living in the very same house during 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 children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only give a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted totally 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 other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should make an application for a divorce.

We can help you with a few of the lesser known areas and complexities, and help you to tactically prepare your child support arrangements and obligations for the future to ensure the very best possible arrangement remains in place offered your and the other moms and dads situations.

Bentleigh Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, nevertheless 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 arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Bentleigh seeking to finalise their obligations 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 obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise called 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 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 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Bentleigh may now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out 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 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 married couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Bentleigh.

De facto partners must not fear that they need to 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 married couple.
