Visitation Rights Glenhope Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Glenhope

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 grant a divorce if there has 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 at least twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not request divorce till the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Glenhope to be separated however to continue residing in the very same home throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need to prove to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have actually 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 prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should apply for a divorce.

It is important to be conscious that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to get.

Glenhope Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, however 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 permits a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, consisting of the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Glenhope seeking to finalise 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 monetary agreement can permanently finalise spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise 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 allegations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was widened in late 2012 and now includes a much larger scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many people in Glenhope might now be surprised to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail 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 at least 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) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Glenhope.

De facto partners must not fear that they need to leave empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes unique provision for the adjustment of residential or commercial property and financial support, in very much the same way as a couple.
