Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Dandongadale
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 give a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies an individual can not apply for divorce till the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.
It is possible for a couple in Dandongadale to be separated but to continue living in the very same house throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘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 only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that proper plans have actually been made for them.
Divorce proceedings are conducted completely separately from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they need to request a divorce.
It is necessary to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to obtain.

- 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.

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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court together with married couples.
Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited 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 unit) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Dandongadale.
De facto spouses must not fear that they need to walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the adjustment of residential or commercial property and financial backing, in very much the same way as a married couple.
