A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Glenferrie South, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept implies that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of infidelity, violence or desertion are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has actually 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 marriage files the application, or a joint application where both parties file the application together.
An application for Divorce is just offered after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a constant duration and means more than physical separation where there is no likelihood of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in situations where the Court does not have jurisdiction to deal with 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 exact same roof or if one has offered the other with some home services. It may be challenging to develop that separation has actually happened in these circumstances and accordingly the Court will require 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 need to be an Australia resident by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your partner has to regard Australia as your home, intend to reside in Glenferrie South forever or otherwise be able to provide evidence that you resided in Australian for at least 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In instances where a couple has actually been married 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 need to think about that proper 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 treated as a member of that home, and under the age of 18.
When 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 worked, there is just a 12 month period in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration may be granted in circumstances where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
