A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Woolamai, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle implies that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of adultery, violence or desertion are irrelevant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is normally filed in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marital relationship submits the application, or a joint application where both parties submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is only readily available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a continuous period and indicates more than physical separation where there is no likelihood of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in scenarios where the Court does not have jurisdiction to handle the matter or otherwise where the parties to the proceedings have actually not been separated for more than 12 months.
An application can still be made while the parties are residing under the same roof or if one has offered the other with some family services. It might be challenging to establish that separation has actually taken place in these circumstances and appropriately the Court will require evidence in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a duration of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will have to be an Australia resident by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be established, you or your spouse needs to regard Australia as your home, plan to live in Woolamai indefinitely or otherwise be able to offer evidence that you lived in Australian for a minimum of 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In instances where a couple has been wed for less than 2 years, the Court requires the parties to participate in a counselling session with a view to reconciliation. There are exceptions to this requirement if there is a history of violence or abuse or where one party can not be located.
At a Divorce hearing, the Court will have to think about that correct arrangements have actually been made for any child of the marital relationship, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has actually or was adopted or who is dealt with as a member of that household, and under the age of 18.
When a Divorce has actually been granted the Divorce ends up being effective one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has taken effect, there is just a 12 month period in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period may be granted in scenarios where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
Parenting Orders Woolamai
Applications for Parenting Orders can be brought by either or both of the moms and dads, a grandparent or any other significant individual in a child’s life.
Prior to the beginning of any Court proceedings the parties are needed to attend, take part and make an authentic attempt in solving any parenting issues at a family conflict resolution conference. Following completion of this conference, a Certificate is issued to the parties.
If an agreement is reached the regards to that agreement can be formalised through an Application for Approval Orders. If no agreement can be reached, further negotiations can be set up with the support of solicitor, mediators and counsellors Woolamai.
If no arrangement can be reached outside of the court system, a person may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require confirmation that the parties have attempted a dispute resolution conference and are in receipt of the Certificate. There are exceptions in acquiring this Certificate prior to the commencement of Court procedures.
In parenting matters, a Court must relate to the very best interests of the child as the critical factor to consider.
According to section 60B of the Family Law Act 1975, the very best interests of the children are fulfilled by:
ensuring that the kids have the advantage of both of their moms and dads having a meaningful involvement in their lives, to the maximum extent consistent with the very best interest of the kid; and
safeguarding the kids from physical and mental damage and from undergoing, or exposed to, abuse, disregard or family violence; and
guaranteeing that children get sufficient and proper parenting to help them attain their complete potential; and
ensuring that moms and dads fulfil their duties, and meet their responsibilities, concerning the care, well-being and advancement of their children.
There are other factors that the Court might consider in any particular scenarios.
