Visitation Rights Gentle Annie Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Gentle Annie

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 has the ability to grant 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.

If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

Divorce proceedings are conducted entirely individually from other proceedings 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 marital relationship breakdown.

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

Family violence (also referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide protection to the victim, however 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 definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was expanded in late 2012 and now includes 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 triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

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 together with married couples.

In spite of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually lived together 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 Gentle Annie.

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