Visitation Rights Eltham Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Eltham

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court has the ability to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. 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 suggests a person can not make an application for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Eltham to be separated but to continue residing in the very same home throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘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 during this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just give a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate arrangements have actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are performed totally separately from other proceedings in 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 marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they need to make an application for a divorce.

It is essential to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is challenging to obtain.

Eltham Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, 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 essentially allows a personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a significant amount of money, including the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Eltham looking for 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 financial agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance obligations.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise known as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only 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 determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now includes a much broader 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 Eltham may now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail account or 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court together with couples.

Despite 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 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 Eltham.

De facto partners must not fear that they should leave empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the change of property and financial backing, in very much the same way as a married couple.
