Visitation Rights Harrietville Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Harrietville

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marriage 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 suggests an individual can not request divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Harrietville to be separated however to continue residing in the 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 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 give a divorce if it is satisfied that correct plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are carried out entirely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they must apply for a divorce.

It is necessary to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to 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 tough to obtain.

Harrietville Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (also known colloquially 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 generally permits a private agreement to be formalised and precludes the later participation of the Family Court. Therefore having such an arrangement can save a substantial sum of money, including the expenses connected 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 Harrietville 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 monetary agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance commitments.

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 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 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
  • economic 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 individuals in Harrietville may now be shocked to find that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised surveillance of the other such as reading their text, monitoring their e-mail account or 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 identified in the Family Court alongside 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 kid, 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 considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Harrietville.

De facto partners 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.
