Visitation Rights Heathwood Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Heathwood

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This means a person can not request divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Heathwood to be separated but to continue residing in the very 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 proper arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out totally separately from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should make an application for a divorce.

It is essential to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance need to be commenced within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to get.

The modification of assessment process can be complicated and we can help in preparing the required documentation and preparing you for the road ahead.

Heathwood Pre-nuptials And Financial Agreements

Financial agreements (likewise known informally as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everyone, 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 essentially allows a personal arrangement to be formalised and precludes the later involvement of the Family Court. For that reason having such an agreement can save a significant sum of money, consisting of the costs associated with property settlement negotiations or lawsuits if the parties separate. It can be compared with income protection insurance or life insurance.

For separated couples in Heathwood looking for 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 financial agreement can completely finalise spousal maintenance commitments.

Family Violence

Family violence (likewise known as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not only are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to offer protection to the victim, however the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when figuring out future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual assault) was broadened in late 2012 and now incorporates a much larger 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 safety or wellbeing.

Lots of people in Heathwood might now be shocked to find 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 internet 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 determined 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 an authentic domestic basis for at least 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 residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Heathwood.

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