Monetary agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however they can be useful:

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 private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court.

It can be compared to earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Doveton seeking to finalise their responsibilities to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement as to a property settlement).

Family Violence

Family violence (also called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide protection to the victim, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition 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
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Doveton may now be surprised to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their email account or internet 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 alongside married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on an authentic 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 residential or commercial 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 Doveton.

De facto spouses must not fear that they need to walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes special provision for the modification of residential or commercial property and financial backing, in very much the same way as a couple.
