A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Shelbourne, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept suggests that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of adultery, violence or abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is typically filed in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marriage submits the application, or a joint application where both parties file the application together.
An application for Divorce is just readily available after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a constant duration and suggests more than physical separation where there is no possibility of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in scenarios 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 residing under the same roof or if one has actually provided the other with some family services. It may be hard to develop that separation has actually happened in these circumstances and accordingly the Court will require proof in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period of 12 months of separation, either you or your spouse will need to be an Australia resident by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your spouse has to regard Australia as your home, mean to reside in Shelbourne indefinitely or otherwise be able to provide 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 actually been wed for less than 2 years, the Court requires the parties to attend 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 proper arrangements have actually been made for 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 been given the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has been made.
Once a Divorce has actually worked, there is just a 12 month duration where to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period may be granted in circumstances where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

Applications for Parenting Orders can be brought by either or both of the parents, a grandparent or any other significant individual in a child’s life.
Prior to the beginning of any Court procedures the parties are required to participate in, take part and make a real attempt in dealing with any parenting problems at a household disagreement resolution conference. Following completion of this conference, a Certificate is provided to the parties.
If a contract is reached the terms of that agreement can be formalised through an Application for Consent Orders. If no agreement can be reached, even more settlements can be organized with the support of solicitor, mediators and counsellors Shelbourne.
If no arrangement can be reached outside of the court system, a person might then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require confirmation that the parties have actually attempted a conflict resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate. There are exceptions in obtaining this Certificate prior to the start of Court proceedings.
