Visitation Rights Hazelwood Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Hazelwood

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended. The Court has the ability to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This implies an individual can not apply for divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Hazelwood 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 need to prove 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 proper plans have actually been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out completely individually from other proceedings in between the couple 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 marital relationship wants to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is necessary to be mindful that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be commenced 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 get.

Hazelwood Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Monetary arrangements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be helpful:

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 arrangement to be formalised and prevents the later participation 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 litigation if the parties separate. It can be compared with earnings protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Hazelwood looking for to settle 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 financial agreement can completely settle spousal maintenance responsibilities.

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 provide protection to the victim, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any allegations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional meaning of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was expanded in late 2012 and now includes a much wider 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 triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Many individuals in Hazelwood might now be shocked to discover that domestic violence orders can be made if a person in the relationship carries out unauthorised monitoring of the other such as reading their text messages, monitoring their email account or 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 determined in the Family Court together with married couples.

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

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 support, in very much the same way as a married couple.
