Visitation Rights Dutton Way Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Dutton Way

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court is able to approve a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple needs to 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 been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Dutton Way to be separated but to continue residing in the exact same home throughout the twelve months, which is known 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 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 arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out completely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they must request a divorce.

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

Other scenarios also apply. The modification of evaluation process can be made complex and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Dutton Way Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise 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 essentially allows a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, including the costs associated 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 Dutton Way seeking to finalise their obligations 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 monetary agreement can permanently settle spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was widened in late 2012 and now includes a much wider 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 security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Dutton Way might now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court along with couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on a real 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 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 Dutton Way.

De facto spouses must not fear that they must walk away 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.
