Visitation Rights Drouin Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Drouin

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates 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 marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This indicates an individual can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Drouin to be separated however to continue residing in the exact same house during the twelve months, which is called ‘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 throughout this time.

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

Divorce procedures are performed entirely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to start divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

It is essential to be conscious that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to acquire.

Drouin Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (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 generally permits a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a considerable amount of money, consisting of the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Drouin seeking to finalise their responsibilities 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 financial agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance obligations.

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, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened in late 2012 and now encompasses a much broader 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Drouin might now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their email account or internet 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 identified in the Family Court alongside married couples.

Regardless 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 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 considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Drouin.

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