Visitation Rights Crossover Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Crossover

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court has the ability to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This indicates an individual can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Crossover to be separated but to continue living in the very same home throughout the twelve months, which is known 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.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are conducted completely individually from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they should make an application for a divorce.

It is very important to be conscious that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be commenced 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.

The modification of assessment procedure can be complicated and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Crossover Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, nevertheless 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 generally enables a personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a significant amount of money, consisting of the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Crossover seeking 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 permanently finalise spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer protection to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now includes 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many people in Crossover may now be surprised to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their email 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court along with couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually 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) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Crossover.

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