Visitation Rights Drysdale Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Drysdale

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. 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 implies 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 Drysdale to be separated but to continue living in the exact same house throughout 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 only approve a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have been made for them.

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

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

Drysdale Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (also known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be beneficial:

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 personal arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable amount of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Drysdale 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). Unlike court orders in the context of spousal maintenance, a monetary agreement can permanently finalise spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also called 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 claims of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition 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
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Drysdale may 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 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 along with couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on a real 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 Drysdale.

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