Child Support

You don’t need us to tell you what child support is or to get a basic idea of what your obligation (or entitlement) will be.

There is a fast children support 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 calculate 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 strategically plan your child support plans and commitments for the future to ensure the best possible plan is in place provided your and the other parents circumstances.

Some areas that Our Family Law Cathcart can assist you with include:

Advising you as to your alternatives relating to child assistance which might include setting up a private child support agreement, in either a limited or binding child support arrangement.

Private agreements supply certainty for both moms and dads for a longer time period (no continuous reassessments each year or more), enable higher flexibility in the method of payment (direct financing in periodic or lump sums, or payment of educational, medical and extracurricular costs in part or in lieu), and remove the need to handle the administration of the Department.

Assessments are prepared by the Department based upon a standard formula, however can be altered under various situations (up or down) based upon factors such as the expense of maintaining the kid in the way the moms and dads planned (e.g.: private education or extra extracurricular costs), if a kid has additional health or medical requirements, if a parent is earnings poor however ‘asset rich’, and so on. Other circumstances also apply. The change of assessment procedure can be made complex and we can assist in preparing the required paperwork and preparing you for the road ahead.

Cathcart Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however 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 generally allows a personal arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable amount of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Cathcart 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 (likewise referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer protection to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning 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 triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many people in Cathcart may now be surprised to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court along with married 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 kid, 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 Cathcart.

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