WHAT IS A FAMILY DISPUTE ?

A family dispute is a conflict that usually happens among the family members. It may be within couples, parents and children, or siblings who are living together or in a close relationship. This may include their grandparents. It is not uncommon for disputes to occur between separated couples and their families. For example, family disputes may occur over the following instances among family members.

  • a Child’s behaviour
  • Children’s education, health and welfare
  • Parenting plan
  • Maintenance of the child, especially between separated couples
  • Upon breach of trust by one partner to other
  • Parenting responsibilities
  • Breach of promises
  • Dispute regarding the property of the finance
  • Relationship breakdown
  • Domestic violence

A COUPLE CAN ENTER INTO SEPARATION AGREEMENTS

The breakdown of a relationship among the partners, either de facto or marriage, can be stressful. In most cases, couples who want to separate from their partners over a family dispute need a peaceful financial and property settlement. Therefore, parties should seek legal advice on reaching a peaceful final settlement and making care arrangements for the children.

BINDING FINANCIAL AGREEMENTS

It isn’t very comfortable for one party to suggest another party enter into a binding agreement before commencement or during their relationship. But the reality is that unexpectedly and unintentionally, a relationship could be broken down for unforeseen reasons. In those circumstances, either party or both parties may seek refuge in silence or seek legal protection, which causes enormous trouble, stress or, most importantly, erosion of family wealth for the legal battle. A prenuptial agreement can promote greater communication and happiness during the marriage or the relationship between the two. Therefore, the law recognizes the concept of ‘Prenuptial Agreements in Australia’.

DISPUTES REGARDING CHILDREN

When there are disputes regarding the children, the child’s best interests are the court’s paramount consideration. Each parent has parental responsibility for the child, which means all the duties, powers, obligations, and authority parents have concerning children by law. Therefore, couples are strongly advised to seek legal advice before agreeing on parenting responsibilities
