Restraining Order Betley Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Betley

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marriage 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 must has been separated for at least 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 Betley 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 have to prove 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 correct arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are conducted totally separately from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should apply for a divorce.

It is very important to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to get.

However, the child support system and the formula used to determine child assistance can be a complex and painful minefield. We can assist you with some of the lower known areas and intricacies, and help you to tactically prepare your child support plans and obligations for the future to ensure the very best possible plan remains in place given your and the other parents situations.

Betley Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, nevertheless they can be useful:

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 personal arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a significant amount of money, consisting of the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Betley seeking to finalise their responsibilities 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 permanently finalise spousal maintenance commitments.

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 accusations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much wider scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Betley may now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email 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 alongside couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited on a genuine domestic basis for a minimum of 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 unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Betley.

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