Visitation Rights Erica Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Erica

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does not consider why the marital relationship 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 actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies a person can not apply for divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Erica to be separated but to continue living in the exact same home throughout the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to prove to the Court that they were separated during this time.

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

Divorce proceedings are conducted completely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should request a divorce.

It is essential to be conscious that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to obtain.

Erica Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, nevertheless they can be helpful:

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 arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement 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 lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Erica seeking 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 financial agreement can permanently finalise spousal maintenance responsibilities.

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 accusations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much larger 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 triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many people in Erica might now be surprised to discover 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 e-mail account or 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.

Regardless 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 property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Erica.

De facto partners must not fear that they must walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes special provision for the adjustment of property and financial support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
