Ellaswood Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, 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 prevents the later participation of the Family Court.

It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Ellaswood seeking to settle 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 monetary agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (also 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, 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 meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now encompasses 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 security or wellbeing.

Many people in Ellaswood might now be shocked to discover 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 e-mail 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 determined in the Family Court alongside couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on a genuine 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 unit) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Ellaswood.

De facto spouses must not fear that they need to leave 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 couple.
