Visitation Rights Germantown Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Germantown

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court has the ability to give 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 must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means a person can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Germantown to be separated but to continue living in the very same home during the twelve months, which is known 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 children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only approve a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate arrangements have actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted completely individually from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

It is very important to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must 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 hard to obtain.

Germantown Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, 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 generally enables a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a considerable amount 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 Germantown seeking to settle their commitments 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 settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer protection 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 children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Germantown might now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their e-mail account or web 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 alongside couples.

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

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