A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Welshmans Reef, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle implies 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 actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is usually 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 file the application together.
An application for Divorce is just available after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a continuous duration and implies more than physical separation where there is no possibility of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in circumstances where the Court does not have jurisdiction to handle 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 same roof or if one has supplied the other with some home services. It might be tough to develop that separation has actually occurred in these scenarios and appropriately 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 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, intend to live in Welshmans Reef forever or otherwise have the ability to provide proof that you lived 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 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 been made for 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 home, and under the age of 18.
When a Divorce has been granted the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has taken effect, there is just a 12 month period in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period may be given in situations where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
