A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Haven, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept indicates that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of infidelity, violence or abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is typically submitted in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marriage files the application, or a joint application where both parties file the application together.
An application for Divorce is just offered after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous period and implies more than physical separation where there is no likelihood of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in circumstances where the Court does not have jurisdiction to deal with the matter or otherwise where the parties to the proceedings have not been separated for more than 12 months.
An application can still be made while the parties are living under the very same roof or if one has supplied the other with some home services. It might be hard to develop that separation has taken place in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will need evidence in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will have to be an Australia citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be established, you or your partner has to regard Australia as your home, intend to live in Haven forever or otherwise be able to provide proof that you resided in Australian for a minimum of 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In circumstances where a couple has actually been married 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 consider that correct plans have actually been produced any child of the marriage, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has actually or was adopted or who is treated as a member of that household, and under the age of 18.
Once a Divorce has actually been given the Divorce ends up being reliable one month and one day after the Order has been made.
When a Divorce has worked, there is only a 12 month duration in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration might be granted in scenarios where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
Parenting Orders Haven
Applications for Parenting Orders can be brought by either or both of the parents, a grandparent or other significant individual in a child’s life.
Prior to the beginning of any Court procedures the parties are needed to go to, get involved and make a real attempt in resolving any parenting problems at a household disagreement resolution conference. Following completion of this conference, a Certificate is issued to the parties.
If an arrangement is reached the terms of that contract can be formalised through an Application for Consent Orders. If no arrangement can be reached, even more settlements can be set up with the help of lawyer, mediators and counsellors Haven.
If no arrangement can be reached beyond the court system, an individual may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will need verification that the parties have tried a dispute resolution conference and are in receipt of the Certificate. There are exceptions in getting this Certificate prior to the commencement of Court procedures.
In parenting matters, a Court needs to relate to the very best interests of the kid as the paramount consideration.
Inning accordance with section 60B of the Family Law Act 1975, the very best interests of the children are satisfied by:
ensuring that the children have the benefit of both of their moms and dads having a significant involvement in their lives, to the maximum level constant with the best interest of the kid; and
safeguarding the children from physical and psychological harm and from being subjected to, or exposed to, abuse, disregard or family violence; and
ensuring that kids get sufficient and correct parenting to help them attain their complete potential; and
making sure that moms and dads fulfil their responsibilities, and meet their obligations, concerning the care, well-being and development of their children.
There are other elements that the Court may consider in any specific situations.
