Divorce lawyers or Family Lawyers as they are more commonly known as, are well versed with all aspects of divorce law including annulment, separation, cohabitation and civil partnership disputes, preparation of prenuptial agreements, and most related issues, but particularly financial issues arising from the breakdown of relationships. Divorce Lawyers realise that these are sensitive issues and will try to handle them in a sympathetic, civilised and positive manner and by advising clearly and acting firmly and decisively to resolve them, if possible by agreement.

Divorce Lawyers, or family Lawyers also often deal with complex and high value divorce and separation arrangements (usually by agreement but sometimes in court), pre-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, civil partnerships, family businesses, property and trusts, issues for children including parental responsibility, residence and contact, and inheritance claims.

DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS

Divorce proceedings cannot be started until the couple have been married for a year.

The Family Court can divorce a couple if the marriage is recognised as being valid in Australia.

Most divorces are undefended, allowing the divorce to proceed on paper through a relatively simple procedure. Only if one partner does not consent to the divorce will the couple have to attend Court.

Whether the divorce is consented to or not, the divorce can only proceed if one partner can show that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. To do this, the person applying for the divorce must prove one or more of the following general facts:

1.Their husband or wife has committed adultery. If their partner does not admit the adultery, evidence must be obtained to show that the adultery has taken place. The person applying for the divorce must confirm to the Court that they can no longer tolerate living with their partner.

2.Their husband or wife’s behaviour has been unreasonable. Often, there are relatively mild examples, which are agreed by both. One incident of unreasonable behaviour can be sufficient if the behaviour was particularly severe. The person applying for the divorce must confirm to the Court that they cannot be expected to go on living with their partner.

3.Their husband or wife has deserted them. The person applying for the divorce must show that their partner left them without their consent over 2 years ago.

4.They have been separated from their partner for at least two years and their partner consents to the divorce.

5.They have been separated from their partner for at least five years. Their partner’s consent to the divorce is not needed.
A straight-forward divorce can usually be obtained within a matter of months of the proceedings beginning, provided neither husband nor wife delay matters.

DIVISION OF FINANCES AND PROPERTY ON DIVORCE

The division of finances on divorce is usually by agreement between divorce lawyers or family lawyers, endorsed in a Court Order rather than following a court hearing. There should be no discrimination between husband and wife, or between the money-earner and the home-maker.

The law governing the Courts’ approach (and therefore the approach of divorce lawyers or family lawyers advising and negotiating on behalf of clients) to financial settlements on divorce is based on the Family Law Act 1975 (cth).

Generally speaking, the courts will determine what is a fair division.

Behaviour in financial proceedings is not considered on the basis of moral or emotional conduct. Infidelity or domestic violence is only taken into to account if it has a financial impact.

The aim of the law is to arrive at “fairness”. Although a starting point may be 50% each the overall situation of the parties may mean a departure from equality in certain circumstances. For example, consideration is given to the facts in each case including:

1.age of the parties (including life expectancy of each party in respect of future income) and length of the marriage

2.contribution both in financial and other ways (including bringing up children and inheritance)

3.resources and needs of the parties

4.standard of living during the marriage

If there are children, the first consideration is their welfare, including their housing needs, and this may impact on the overall financial settlement. Children are of paramount consideration.

THE DIVORCE PROCESS

Divorce Lawyers can guide you through the full process of divorce, including the following steps:


1. Divorce Petition - The first step is the initial petition for divorce which you fill in to begin the divorce process. This is where you must state your reasons for wanting a divorce, and Divorce Lawyers can help you to word this in the best way for a judge to agree that your marriage has irretrievably broken down.

2. 'Serving' the Divorce Petition - Next you have to ‘serve’ the petition; this is usually done immediately by post and your husband or wife has to acknowledge receipt. If they don’t, you may need to get court officials involved. Again, Divorce Lawyers can take care of this for you.

3. Contesting the Divorce - Your partner may contest the divorce, in which case you may have to remain married but living separately for 5 years until you can divorce without your spouse’s agreement. During this time you’ll probably need to resolve any financial issues, and our advice could be, literally, invaluable.

4. Children - And, of course, if you have children then getting divorced gets more complicated. The court must agree with the arrangements you make for your children, such as which parent they’ll live with and how much contact they’ll have with the other parent. Custody of and contact with children following a divorce can cause bitter arguments, and the court will decide what is best for your children. So having a specialist divorce lawyer on your side can be vital if child custody will be an issue.

5. Financial Issues - In most cases there will be financial issues to sort out – how will you divide up your property and finances? It’s not automatic that things get divided 50/50 and if you do go to court to get divorced the judge will decide who gets what, especially if there are children involved. Divorce Lawyers can negotiate on your behalf.

CO-HABITATION: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS REGARDING THE LAW AND RELATIONSHIPS

PROPERTY ISSUES:

1.My partner and I have bought a house together. Do we own 50% each?

Living together or buying together does not automatically entitle you to 50%. It is better to agree the division in a legal document called a declaration of trust, otherwise it can be complicated and expensive to calculate shares. Your share may depend on your financial contribution, and whether you are registered as the house owner. Usually only financial contributions which have increased the value of a property count, but you must have proof. If you have children, different rules apply which may change the outcome. In addition to the declaration of trust, you should make a co-habitation agreement (see below).

2.My partner and I do not want to marry but want to record that we will live together, and who will be responsible for bills and other outgoings on our home. Can we do this? If so, how?

Ownership of the home and payment of bills should be recorded in a co-habitation agreement (also known as a property relationship agreement). Both of you must receive independent legal advice before entering into the agreement, which should be signed and witnessed.

3.I have separated from my partner. Can I claim maintenance?

No: spouses can do so but co-habitees cannot - but this may not prevent you claiming against your partner's estate upon death (see below). If there are children of the relationship, the parent no longer living with the children has an obligation to maintain and support them (see below).

CHILDREN ISSUES

1.My partner and I have children together. We are not married, do we have equal rights and responsibilities in respect of the children?

No. Married parents have “parental responsibility” for their children, and thus have the right to make important decisions in the child’s life. When a child is born to an unmarried couple, only the mother automatically has parental responsibility However if the father's name appears on the birth certificate the father automatically has parental responsibility too. In the event of a dispute, a parent with parental responsibility has a right to decide whether the child receives medical treatment or what school he or she attends. The father can also obtain parental responsibility in several other ways. He might sign an agreement with the child’s mother (which must be registered at court), or the court might order that he has parental responsibility, or he might marry the mother.

2.My former partner wants to change our child’s surname – can they do this?

The child’s name can usually only be changed with both parents’ agreement, or by a court order. This may be important, for example, if the mother marries again and wants the child to take her new husband’s surname.

3.My former partner and I are arguing about child support. Can the court be asked to decide? How long must I pay child maintenance?

The court can only make an order for child maintenance if you and your partner reach agreement, or if extra maintenance is needed in special circumstances, for example for education fees or to fund a disability the child may have. If you cannot agree, your former partner can ask the Child Support Agency to assess how much you should pay. Under this system, the parent no longer living with the child will pay a fixed percentage of income as maintenance.

DEATH

1.My partner has not made a will – what will happen when he or she dies?

You will receive nothing except your partner's share of certain jointly-owned property. Otherwise your partner's estate will only go to their relatives. Co-habitees must therefore make wills, to ensure that they decide who will benefit when they die.

2.My partner has died without making a will. Can I claim against his/her estate? Can our children claim against the estate?

If there is no will, or insufficient provision is made in a will, income can be claimed from the deceased’s estate for any dependent children. The surviving partner may also claim against the estate if, immediately before the deceased died, the couple lived as husband and wife for two years or more, or if the deceased was maintaining the surviving partner. Any such claims must be made once a grant of Probate is made.

My Spouse Wants A Divorce And Now I'm Not Sure How To Treat Him

"I am not sure how I am supposed to act toward my husband now. Two weeks ago, I was walking on egg shells, but trying very hard to be sweet. Because I knew that my husband was not happy. But last night, he told me that he wanted a divorce and that he was going to be filing for one eventually. I find myself being incredibly nasty and sarcastic to my husband. It's not that I didn't know that we were having problems. But I'm so disappointed in him because he is not willing to try and work this out. He gave up so easily and so early. This makes me very disappointed in him. I used to want to save my marriage and I tried the 'sweet' tactic before, but I am angry now. I do worry about what a divorce will do to my children. Ideally, I would like to avoid it. But right now, I can't seem to get control over my emotions. I feel like he is the enemy. How are you supposed to treat the spouse who wants a divorce?"

"When my husband first told me that he wanted to move out, he claimed that he was only looking to separate. He simply said that he wanted to try a trial separation and he moved out. We continued to talk almost every day and we sometimes met for dinner. Last week, we were having dinner and my husband took out his wallet to pay. A card fell out and fluttered onto the floor. I picked it up, but I could not help looking at the card to see what it was. Unfortunately, the card appeared to be from a divorce attorney. He said that he had not filed, but that he had just talked to the attorney to figure out his options. He said at this point, he has no immediate intentions to file for a divorce, but he doesn't know that he won't eventually. Why won't he just tell me now what he really wants?"

Yes, you only liked me when I: Didn't stand up for myself Didn't call boundaries Squashed my voice Shrunk to fit you Said yes to you and no to me Gave you everything and gave myself nothing You only liked me when you could get your own way.

Divorced Parents - What Do You Do When Your Child Doesn't Want to See You or Your Ex?

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 08:59:28 -0500

Let's face it co-parenting after divorce isn't easy. Many children of divorce go through a roller-coaster of emotions like their parents do when the family splits. Children may isolate. Have angry outbursts. Refuse to eat. Cry. Say horrible things. Throw tantrums. But what do you do if they refuse to see you or your ex-spouse? It's a delicate and difficult situation for all involved and one that needs to be handled carefully. Even when every measure has been taken to make the separation as smooth as possible and there is a positive environment provided by both parents, children may refuse to leave one parent to go to the other. They will typically do this at the switch time, where they announce that don't want to go. This happened to my sister when she got divorced. She would turn up to collect her children for a family gathering and find her son had refused to get dressed that morning because he didn't want to go. Whether it happens occasionally or on a more regular basis, angry outbursts and over reactions can make the situation a whole lot worse.

Grieving the End of the Marriage - 4 Steps to Begin Healing

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 11:50:08 -0500

Divorce is a word that we see and hear everywhere. In our daily lives divorce attorneys solicit their services in commercials, billboards, print media and flyers. Television shows and films trivialize divorce as it's cloaked in steamy affairs, romanticized depictions of fragmented families and crimes of passion and revenge. But the word divorce means something entirely different to someone who is experiencing it in real time. Divorce can be correlated with another "D" word, disaster. Experts in the Mental health field say that the pain divorce creates rivals grieving the death of a loved one. Despite the prevalence of divorce, Grief is an emotion and subject that no one talks about. Yet Russell Friedman, Co-founder of the Grief Recovery Institute state that "Grief is the Normal and Natural reaction to Loss of any Kind." So why don't we talk and have information about grief a natural reaction to divorce? I don't have the answer to that (sorry), but I can share 4 steps you can take to begin healing.
