A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Berringa, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle suggests 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 usually submitted in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marital relationship submits the application, or a joint application where both parties submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is just offered after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a constant duration and indicates 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 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 provided the other with some family services. It might be tough to develop that separation has 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 have to be an Australia citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your partner has to regard Australia as your home, intend to live in Berringa forever or otherwise be able to supply proof that you lived in Australian for a minimum of 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 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 correct 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 household, and under the age of 18.
Once a Divorce has actually been approved the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has taken effect, there is just a 12 month duration in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration might be granted in scenarios where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
