Visitation Rights Hawthorn Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Hawthorn

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to give a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This means 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 Hawthorn to be separated however to continue residing in the exact same home throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘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 approve a divorce if it is satisfied that proper plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce procedures are conducted totally separately from other proceedings 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 wants to re-marry they should request a divorce.

It is very important to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is challenging to obtain.

Hawthorn 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 generally permits a personal agreement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an arrangement can save a considerable amount of money, including the costs connected with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance coverage or life insurance.

For separated couples in Hawthorn looking for 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).

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise referred to 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, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for children.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was widened in late 2012 and now incorporates 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many people in Hawthorn may now be shocked 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 messages, monitoring their email account or web web 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 residential or commercial property settlement and spousal maintenance identified in the Family Court along with married couples.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have actually 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 considered to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Hawthorn.

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