Reading a family law blog helps people understand the legislation around family law matters. Law firms like ours publish articles daily on our family law blog. This article will provide a summary of certain important topics which have been published on our family law blog.
Commonly Featured Topics
- Divorce and separation
Divorce and separation are important matters falling under family law. Within this there are topics like property settlement, binding financial agreements, sole custody disputes which include necessary details that one should be aware of.
For instance, when dealing with property settlements there are important timelines that people need to keep in mind. Generally, property settlement needs to be finalised within 12 months after a divorce order is made.
These types of important information is present in family law blogs which is why it is essential to keep reading articles published there.
Some important topics include:
- Domestic violence
In Australia, the issue of domestic violence is rampant with statistics showing that one in every six women, and one in every 16 men are subjected to domestic violence.
Our family blog has articles on domestic violence which explain the various legal avenues that you can take to tackle the issue of domestic violence. These include applying for apprehended violence orders (AVOs) or apprehended domestic violence orders (ADVOs).
The articles on domestic violence on our family blog explain the procedures involved to both take out an AVO and get an AVO dropped.
- Spousal maintenance
Following a divorce, you can apply for spousal maintenance which are financial support payments made from one party to the other, which support them until they are able to manage.
Articles on spousal maintenance include information on eligibility, types of payments made for spousal maintenance, how calculations are made, and how the application process works.
Importance Of Family Law Blog
The main act governing Family law in Australia is the Family Law Act (1975). Because of how comprehensive the legislation is, it is not always easy for people to grasp various aspects which are included in it.
For these reasons, a family law blog deals with various parts of the legislation under different topics. For instance, the legislation on parental responsibility will be discussed in matters dealing with sole custody, or child visitation rights.
Similarly, for all parenting related matters, the topic of “best interests of the child” is often revisited in every family law blog. In this way, you can ensure that you are always up-to-date with all relevant and important information.
