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 grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This indicates an individual can not apply for divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Cabarita 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 need to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

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

Divorce procedures are conducted entirely individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they need to apply for a divorce.

Cabarita Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

It can be compared with earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Cabarita 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 financial agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance responsibilities.

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, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any claims of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened in late 2012 and now includes a much broader 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 causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Cabarita might 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 messages, monitoring their email account or web browser history.

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 property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court along with couples.

Regardless of 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 considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Cabarita.
