A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Cavendish, the Family Law Act 1975 established 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 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 only offered after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a constant period and indicates 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 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 living under the same roof or if one has provided the other with some home services. It might be challenging to develop that separation has actually taken place in these situations 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 partner will have to be an Australia citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your partner needs to regard Australia as your home, mean to reside in Cavendish forever or otherwise be able to supply evidence that you resided in Australian for at least 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In circumstances where a couple has been married for less than 2 years, the Court requires the parties to go to 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 consider that appropriate arrangements have actually 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 treated as a member of that household, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has actually been given the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has actually taken effect, there is only a 12 month period where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this period may be granted in scenarios 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 needed to go to, get involved and make a genuine attempt in dealing with any parenting concerns at a family disagreement resolution conference. Following conclusion of this conference, a Certificate is provided to the parties.

If no agreement can be reached outside of the court system, a person might then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require verification that the parties have actually attempted a dispute resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate.
