Restraining Order Boort VIC

Restraining Order Boort Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Boort

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to grant 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 a person can not request divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Boort to be separated but to continue living in the same home throughout the twelve months, which is known 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 during this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are conducted totally separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they should apply for a divorce.

It is 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 duration with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to get.

Child Support

You do not require us to inform you exactly what child assistance is or to get a general concept of what your obligation (or entitlement) will be.

There is a fast children assistance estimator on the website of the Department of Human Services Child Support (” the Department”) which you can use.

However, the child support system and the formula used to compute child support can be a complex and painful minefield. We can help you with some of the lesser recognized areas and intricacies, and help you to tactically plan your child support plans and responsibilities for the future to ensure the best possible arrangement remains in place provided your and the other moms and dads scenarios.

Some areas that Our Family Law Boort can help you with consist of:

Advising you as to your choices concerning child support which might include organizing a personal child assistance agreement, in either a limited or binding child support agreement.

Private agreements offer certainty for both parents for a longer time period (no continual reassessments each year or more), enable greater flexibility in the method of payment (direct funding in periodic or lump sums, or payment of educational, medical and extracurricular costs in part or in lieu), and get rid of the need to handle the bureaucracy of the Department.

Assessments are prepared by the Department based upon a standard formula, however can be changed under various circumstances (up or down) based on aspects such as the cost of maintaining the child in the way the moms and dads meant (e.g.: private education or additional extracurricular costs), if a kid has extra health or medical requirements, if a parent is earnings poor but ‘asset rich’, and so on. Other situations also use. The modification of evaluation process can be made complex and we can help in preparing the required paperwork and preparing you for the road ahead.

Boort Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial 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 essentially enables a personal arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a substantial 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 Boort seeking to settle 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 financial agreement can permanently settle 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 provide protection to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any claims of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Boort may now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes 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 determined in the Family Court alongside married 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 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) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Boort.

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