The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is normally filed in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marital relationship files the application, or a joint application where both parties file the application together.
An application for Divorce is just available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous duration and means more than physical separation where there is no likelihood of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in scenarios where the Court does not have jurisdiction to handle the matter or otherwise where the parties to the proceedings have actually 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 actually offered the other with some household services.

At a Divorce hearing, the Court will need to consider that correct arrangements have been made for any child of the marriage, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has or was adopted or who is dealt with as a member of that family, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has actually been granted the Divorce becomes efficient one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has taken effect, there is just a 12 month period in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this duration may be granted in scenarios where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
