A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Glenalbyn, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept means that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of infidelity, violence or desertion are irrelevant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is typically submitted 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 submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is only offered after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a constant period and means more than physical separation where there is no likelihood of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in circumstances 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 residing under the very same roof or if one has actually supplied the other with some household services. It may be hard to establish that separation has actually taken place in these circumstances and appropriately 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 have to be an Australia resident by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your spouse needs to regard Australia as your home, plan to reside in Glenalbyn indefinitely or otherwise have the ability to offer evidence that you lived in Australian for a minimum of 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In circumstances where a couple has actually 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 proper arrangements have actually been produced 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 home, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has been approved the Divorce ends up being efficient one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
As soon as a Divorce has actually taken effect, there is only a 12 month period in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period might be approved in situations where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
