A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Skye, 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 accusations of adultery, violence or desertion are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has 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 submits the application, or a joint application where both parties submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is only offered after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous duration and means 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 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 provided the other with some household services. It might be challenging to establish that separation has happened in these circumstances and accordingly the Court will need 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 citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your spouse has to regard Australia as your home, intend to live in Skye forever or otherwise be able to supply 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 married for less than 2 years, the Court requires 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 proper arrangements have 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 home, and under the age of 18.
When a Divorce has been granted the Divorce ends up being effective one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
As soon as a Divorce has actually taken effect, there is only a 12 month duration in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period may be granted in scenarios where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
