A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Rushworth, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept means that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any accusations of adultery, violence or desertion are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is usually 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 only offered after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous period and means 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 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 actually offered the other with some household services. It might be challenging to develop that separation has actually happened in these circumstances and appropriately the Court will need evidence in assistance of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a duration 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 partner needs to regard Australia as your home, mean to live in Rushworth forever or otherwise be able to offer evidence that you lived in Australian for a minimum of 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In instances where a couple has been wed 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 consider that correct 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 actually been granted the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has been made.
When a Divorce has worked, there is only a 12 month period where to file an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration might be approved in circumstances where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
