Restraining Order Ferndale VIC

Restraining Order Ferndale Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Ferndale

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to approve a divorce if there has 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 at least twelve months and one day. This implies a person can not request divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Ferndale to be separated but to continue residing in the same house during 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 throughout 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 actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted entirely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they need to make an application for a divorce.

It is important to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to get.

Ferndale Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, nevertheless 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 enables a private arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable sum of money, including the expenses connected 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 Ferndale looking for to finalise their obligations 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 completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer security 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 assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now incorporates 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 triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Ferndale might now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail account or web web 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 alongside married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on a genuine 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 Ferndale.

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