Boolite Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, 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 allows a private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a substantial amount of money, including the costs associated 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 Boolite seeking to settle their obligations 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 obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (also known as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer protection to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now encompasses a much larger scope of behaviours such as:

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

Many individuals in Boolite might 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 messages, monitoring their email 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 determined in the Family Court together with couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together 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 Boolite.

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