Visitation Rights Greythorn Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Greythorn

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

It is possible for a couple in Greythorn 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 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 only give a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are conducted completely individually from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no responsibility on a party to start divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must apply for a divorce.

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

Child Support

You don’t need us to tell you exactly what child assistance is or to get a basic concept of what your responsibility (or entitlement) will be.

There is a quick children assistance estimator on the site of the Department of Human Services Child Support (” the Department”) which you can use.

However, the child support system and the formula used to calculate child assistance can be a complex and painful minefield. We can help you with a few of the lesser known areas and intricacies, and assist you to tactically plan your child support arrangements and obligations for the future to ensure the best possible arrangement is in place given your and the other moms and dads scenarios.

Our lawyers provides legal advice on visitation rights Greythorn and all family matters. Call 1300 241 740 now for a consultation.

Some areas that Our Family Law Greythorn can assist you with include:

Advising you as to your choices regarding child assistance which might include arranging a personal child support arrangement, in either a minimal or binding child support agreement.

Private arrangements supply certainty for both moms and dads for a longer time period (no continuous reassessments each year or more), enable higher flexibility in the approach of payment (direct funding in periodic or lump sums, or payment of educational, medical and extracurricular costs in part or in lieu), and eliminate the need to deal with the administration of the Department.

Assisting In Steps To Recover Unsettled Child Support In Greythorn

We can assist in converting the unpaid amount from a Commonwealth debt to a personal debt to allow you to side step the Department and pursue personal recovery litigation through the Court or more serious steps such as recovering the unpaid debt from a recalcitrant partner at the worldwide airport gate terminal.

Helping you to modify the Department evaluated child support amount to better match your individual situations.

Evaluations are prepared by the Department based upon a standard formula, but can be changed under different situations (up or down) based on factors such as the expense of maintaining the kid in the way the parents meant (e.g.: private education or extra extracurricular costs), if a kid has extra health or medical needs, if a parent is earnings poor but ‘asset rich’, and so on. Other circumstances also use. The change of evaluation process can be complicated and we can assist in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Greythorn Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, 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 enables a private agreement to be formalised and prevents the later involvement of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a substantial sum of money, including the costs 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 Greythorn seeking to finalise their obligations 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 monetary agreement can permanently settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

Family Violence

Family violence (also called 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 claims 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 encompasses a much broader 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 individuals in Greythorn may now be surprised to find that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail account or internet browser history.

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 property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court together with married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually cohabited on an authentic domestic basis for at least 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 unit) are considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Greythorn.

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