Visitation Rights Hampton Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Hampton

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means 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 marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not make an application for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Hampton to be separated but to continue living in the very same home throughout the twelve months, which is referred to 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 just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted completely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to commence 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 wants to re-marry they need to request a divorce.

It is important to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to 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 challenging to acquire.

Hampton Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial arrangements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, nevertheless 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 allows a personal arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a considerable amount of money, including the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared to income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Hampton looking for to finalise 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 permanently finalise spousal maintenance obligations.

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 provide security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any claims of domestic violence into consideration when identifying future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was widened in late 2012 and now encompasses 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 individual and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.

Many people in Hampton may now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if an individual in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email 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 couples.

Despite not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on a genuine domestic basis for a minimum of 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 unit) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Hampton.

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