A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Simpson, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept 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 marriage has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is typically 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 just readily available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a constant duration and means 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 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 offered the other with some family services. It may be difficult to establish that separation has actually occurred in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will need 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 need to be an Australia resident by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be established, you or your partner needs to regard Australia as your home, plan to live in Simpson indefinitely or otherwise have the ability to offer proof that you lived in Australian for at least 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 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 proper plans have actually been produced 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 family, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has been given the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has taken effect, there is only a 12 month duration where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this period might be approved in scenarios where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

Prior to the start of any Court proceedings the parties are required to attend, take part and make a genuine effort in fixing any parenting concerns at a family disagreement resolution conference. Following conclusion of this conference, a Certificate is released to the parties.
If an agreement is reached the regards to that contract can be formalised through an Application for Approval Orders. If no agreement can be reached, even more negotiations can be set up with the assistance of lawyer, arbitrators and counsellors Simpson.
If no arrangement can be reached beyond the court system, an individual may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will need confirmation that the parties have actually attempted a dispute resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate. There are exceptions in acquiring this Certificate prior to the start of Court proceedings.
