Visitation Rights Dreeite Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Dreeite

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This means 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 needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This means an individual can not make an application for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Dreeite to be separated but 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 need to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

If there are kids aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only approve a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out completely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to start divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

It is necessary to be conscious that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to get.

Monetary arrangements (likewise 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 essentially enables a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a significant amount of money, including the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Dreeite looking for to finalise their commitments to each other in the context of spousal maintenance (and in conjunction with a Court ordered agreement as to a property settlement).

Family violence (likewise called 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 allegations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now encompasses 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 person and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many people in Dreeite may now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring 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 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 together with 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 Dreeite.

De facto partners should not fear that they should leave empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the change of property and financial support, in very much the same way as a couple.
