A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Greythorn, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept indicates that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of infidelity, violence or abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is generally 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 file 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 constant duration and suggests more than physical separation where there is no possibility of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in situations 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 living under the exact same roof or if one has provided the other with some family services. It might be hard to develop that separation has taken place in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will require proof in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a duration of 12 months of separation, either you or your spouse will need to be an Australia person 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 Greythorn forever or otherwise have the ability to supply 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 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 correct arrangements have actually 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.
As soon as a Divorce has actually been given the Divorce ends up being efficient one month and one day after the Order has been made.
Once a Divorce has actually worked, there is only a 12 month duration in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this duration might be approved in circumstances where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

If no contract can be reached outside of the court system, an individual may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require verification that the parties have tried a disagreement resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate.
