Visitation Rights Elizabeth Island Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Elizabeth Island

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to give a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This suggests an individual can not request divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Elizabeth Island to be separated however to continue living in the same home during the twelve months, which is called ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have 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 only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are conducted entirely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings before taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they need to make an application for a divorce.

It is important to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be started 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 obtain.

Other scenarios also apply. The change of assessment procedure can be complicated and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Elizabeth Island Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however 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 enables a private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an agreement can save a considerable sum of money, consisting of the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Elizabeth Island looking for to settle their responsibilities 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 obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (also referred to as 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 claims of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

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

Many individuals in Elizabeth Island might now be surprised 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 messages, monitoring their email account or internet 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 along with married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on an authentic domestic basis for at least 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 Elizabeth Island.

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 change of property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
