A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Everton, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle indicates that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of adultery, 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 submits the application, or a joint application where both parties file the application together.
An application for Divorce is only available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a constant duration and means more than physical separation where there is no likelihood of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in situations 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 residing under the exact same roof or if one has actually provided the other with some home services. It may be difficult to establish that separation has actually taken place in these situations and accordingly the Court will require proof in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will have to be an Australia citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be established, you or your spouse has to regard Australia as your home, mean to live in Everton forever or otherwise be able to offer evidence 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 wed for less than 2 years, the Court requires 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 proper plans have 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 home, and under the age of 18.
Once a Divorce has been granted the Divorce ends up being reliable one month and one day after the Order has been made.
As soon as a Divorce has worked, there is just a 12 month period in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this duration might be granted in circumstances where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
