Visitation Rights Five Ways Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Five Ways

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to approve a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. 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 suggests an individual can not request divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Five Ways to be separated however to continue living in the exact same house during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘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 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 correct plans have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out entirely individually from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they need to make an application for a divorce.

It is important to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to obtain.

Five Ways Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (also known colloquially 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 basically permits a private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable amount of money, including the expenses associated with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Five Ways seeking to finalise 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 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, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much wider scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many people in Five Ways may now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email account or internet 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 alongside married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together on a real domestic basis for a minimum of 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 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 Five Ways.

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