A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.

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 abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is typically 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 period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a constant period and indicates more than physical separation where there is no probability 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 actually not been separated for more than 12 months.
An application can still be made while the parties are living under the very same roof or if one has offered the other with some household services. It might be challenging to establish that separation has actually happened in these situations and appropriately the Court will require proof in assistance of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a duration of 12 months of separation, either you or your spouse will need to be an Australia citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your spouse has to regard Australia as your home, plan to reside in Mount Burnett indefinitely or otherwise be able to supply proof that you resided 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 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 need to think about that correct arrangements have actually been made for any child of the marriage, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has actually or was adopted or who is dealt with as a member of that family, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has been approved the Divorce becomes efficient one month and one day after the Order has been made.
When a Divorce has actually taken effect, there is only a 12 month period in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration might be granted in scenarios where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
