A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Bellfield, 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 infidelity, violence or abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage 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 submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is just available after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a constant 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 provided the other with some family services. It may be tough to develop that separation has actually occurred in these circumstances and appropriately the Court will need proof 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 spouse needs to regard Australia as your home, plan to live in Bellfield forever or otherwise have the ability to supply 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 go to 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 consider that appropriate plans have been produced any child of the marital relationship, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has actually or was adopted or who is treated as a member of that family, and under the age of 18.
Once a Divorce has been approved the Divorce ends up being efficient one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has taken effect, there is only a 12 month duration in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this period might be given in circumstances where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
