A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Walwa, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle means that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of infidelity, violence or desertion are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is generally 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 submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is just readily available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous period and indicates 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 actually not been separated for more than 12 months.
An application can still be made while the parties are residing under the same roof or if one has actually supplied the other with some household services. It might be hard to establish that separation has actually occurred in these circumstances and accordingly 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 citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your partner needs to regard Australia as your home, plan to live in Walwa forever or otherwise have the ability to offer evidence that you lived in Australian for a minimum of 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In circumstances where a couple has been married 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 have to think about that appropriate arrangements have actually been produced 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.
Once a Divorce has been approved the Divorce becomes effective one month and one day after the Order has been made.
As soon as a Divorce has taken effect, there is only a 12 month period where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period may be approved in situations where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

Prior to the commencement of any Court proceedings the parties are needed to participate in, take part and make an authentic effort in solving any parenting problems at a family dispute resolution conference. Following completion of this conference, a Certificate is issued to the parties.
If an agreement is reached the regards to that agreement can be formalised through an Application for Permission Orders. If no agreement can be reached, further settlements can be arranged with the assistance of lawyer, arbitrators and counsellors Walwa.
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 tried a conflict resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate. There are exceptions in getting this Certificate prior to the start of Court procedures.
In parenting matters, a Court should regard the very best interests of the child as the paramount consideration.
Inning accordance with section 60B of the Family Law Act 1975, the best interests of the children are met by:
