The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means an individual can not apply for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Gerahmin to be separated however to continue living in the exact same home during 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 show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

Divorce procedures are performed totally individually from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown.

Gerahmin Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, 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 essentially allows a private arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Gerahmin looking for to finalise 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 monetary agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

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 provide protection 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 definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much larger scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Gerahmin may now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email 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 identified in the Family Court together with married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited 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 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 Gerahmin.

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