Visitation Rights Dingee Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Dingee

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. 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 marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies an individual can not request divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Dingee to be separated however to continue residing in the very 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 during 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 actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted 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 other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they need to make an application for a divorce.

It is essential to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is challenging to acquire.

Dingee Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, 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 essentially enables a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable sum of money, consisting of the expenses connected 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 Dingee looking for to settle their commitments 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 financial agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (also known 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, however 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 assault) was expanded 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 safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Dingee may 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 e-mail 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 residential or commercial 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 cohabited on a genuine domestic basis for a minimum of 2 years (or less if they have a kid, 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) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Dingee.

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 change of residential or commercial property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
