A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Wangandary, the Family Law Act 1975 developed 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 abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is normally submitted in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marriage submits the application, or a joint application where both parties submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is only available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a constant duration and implies 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 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 residing under the exact same roof or if one has supplied the other with some home services. It might be tough to establish that separation has taken place in these circumstances and accordingly the Court will require proof in assistance 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 established, you or your spouse has to regard Australia as your home, plan to reside in Wangandary forever or otherwise have the ability to provide proof that you resided 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 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 correct 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 dealt with as a member of that family, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has actually been given the Divorce ends up being efficient one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has actually worked, there is just a 12 month duration where to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this duration might be approved in situations where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
