Visitation Rights Denison Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Denison

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This suggests an individual can not apply for divorce till the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Denison to be separated but to continue residing 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 have 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 give a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out 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. 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 mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance must 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 hard to obtain.

Denison Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, 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 essentially permits a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a substantial amount of money, including the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Denison looking for to settle their responsibilities 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 permanently settle spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise known 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 abuse) 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 person and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many people in Denison might now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email account or 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 together with married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have cohabited 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) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Denison.

De facto partners should not fear that they must leave 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 married couple.
