Restraining Order Chetwynd Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Chetwynd

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to approve a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies an individual can not make an application for divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Chetwynd to be separated however to continue living in the 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 children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only give a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are conducted completely individually from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown.

There is a quick children support estimator on the site 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 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 strategically plan your child support plans and obligations for the future to ensure the best possible arrangement remains in place provided your and the other parents situations.

Chetwynd Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known informally 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 allows a personal agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a significant amount of money, including the costs 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 Chetwynd seeking to settle their commitments 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 monetary agreement can permanently finalise spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise known as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide security 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 meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now includes a much larger 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 people in Chetwynd might now be surprised to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail account or internet web 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 identified in the Family Court together with couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Chetwynd.

De facto partners should not fear that they should 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 couple.
