Visitation Rights Edgecombe Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Edgecombe

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 approve 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 must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies a person can not apply for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Edgecombe to be separated but to continue residing in the 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 need to show to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

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

Divorce procedures are performed entirely separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

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

Edgecombe Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, nevertheless 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 permits a personal agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a substantial sum of money, including the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Edgecombe looking for to finalise their obligations 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 commitments.

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 offer protection to the victim, but 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 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 Edgecombe might 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 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court alongside married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on a genuine domestic basis for at least 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Edgecombe.

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