Visitation Rights Grassmere Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Grassmere

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies 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 actually broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not request divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Grassmere to be separated however to continue living in the same home during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that correct arrangements have actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out entirely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no commitment on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they should make an application for a divorce.

It is necessary to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to get.

Grassmere Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary agreements (likewise 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 allows a personal arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a significant amount of money, including the expenses connected 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 Grassmere seeking to settle their obligations 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 financial agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise known as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just 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 determining future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was expanded 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 person and triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Grassmere might now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship undertakes 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance determined in the Family Court together with 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 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 residential or commercial 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 Grassmere.

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