Visitation Rights Fish Creek Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Fish Creek

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means a person can not make an application for divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Fish Creek to be separated but to continue living in the exact 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 prove 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 conducted totally individually from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to begin divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must 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 only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to obtain.

Fish Creek Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (also known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, 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 permits a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a substantial 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 Fish Creek looking for to finalise their commitments 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 responsibilities.

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 offer security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

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

Lots of people in Fish Creek might now be shocked 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, monitoring their email account or web 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 property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court alongside 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 a minimum of 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 thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Fish Creek.

De facto partners must 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 backing, in very much the same way as a couple.
