A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Batman, 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 accusations of adultery, violence or desertion are irrelevant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has 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 marriage 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 period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a continuous period and implies more than physical separation where there is no possibility of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in scenarios 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 living under the very same roof or if one has actually offered the other with some home services. It may be difficult to develop that separation has actually occurred in these scenarios and appropriately 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 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, mean to live in Batman forever or otherwise be able to provide proof 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 married for less than 2 years, the Court needs 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 consider that appropriate plans 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 treated as a member of that home, and under the age of 18.
When a Divorce has been given the Divorce ends up being reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has worked, there is just a 12 month period where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration might be given in circumstances where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

Prior to the start of any Court proceedings the parties are needed to go to, take part and make an authentic attempt in dealing with any parenting issues at a family disagreement resolution conference. Following completion of this conference, a Certificate is provided to the parties.

If no contract can be reached beyond the court system, an individual may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require verification that the parties have tried a dispute resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate.
