Visitation Rights Dallas Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Dallas

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court is able to approve 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 must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not apply for divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Dallas to be separated however to continue living in the same house during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘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 kids aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just give a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are performed totally individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to begin divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they must apply for a divorce.

It is necessary to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is challenging to get.

Assisting In Steps To Recover Unpaid Child Assistance In Dallas

Assessments are prepared by the Department based upon a standard formula, however can be altered under different circumstances (up or down) based on factors such as the cost of maintaining the child in the way the moms and dads intended (e.g.: private education or additional extracurricular costs), if a child has extra health or medical needs, if a parent is income poor however ‘asset rich’, etc. Other scenarios also use. The change of assessment process can be complicated and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Dallas Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however they can be helpful:

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 basically enables a private arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, consisting of the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Dallas seeking 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 commitments.

Family Violence

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

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was widened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much wider 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 Dallas might now be shocked to find 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 web 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court along with 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Dallas.

De facto spouses must not fear that they should walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the change of residential or commercial property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
