A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Gardenvale, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle indicates that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any accusations of adultery, violence or desertion are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is usually filed in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marriage files 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 continuous period and means more than physical separation where there is no probability of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in situations where the Court does not have jurisdiction to handle 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 living under the exact same roof or if one has offered the other with some household services. It may be hard to establish that separation has occurred in these situations and accordingly the Court will need evidence in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will have to be an Australia person by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be established, you or your spouse needs to regard Australia as your home, plan to live in Gardenvale forever or otherwise be able to offer proof that you lived in Australian for at least 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In instances where a couple has been wed for less than 2 years, the Court needs the parties to participate in 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 consider that appropriate arrangements have actually been made for any child of the marital relationship, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has or was adopted or who is dealt with as a member of that home, and under the age of 18.
Once a Divorce has actually been approved the Divorce becomes effective one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has worked, there is only a 12 month duration where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration may be given in situations where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

Prior to the beginning of any Court proceedings the parties are required to attend, take part and make a real attempt in fixing any parenting issues at a household conflict resolution conference. Following conclusion of this conference, a Certificate is released to the parties.

If no contract can be reached outside of the court system, an individual might then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will need confirmation that the parties have actually tried a dispute resolution conference and are in receipt of the Certificate. There are exceptions in getting this Certificate prior to the start of Court procedures.
