A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Jamieson, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle indicates that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of infidelity, violence or desertion are irrelevant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has actually 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 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 period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a continuous duration and indicates 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 living under the very same roof or if one has actually offered the other with some household services. It may be difficult to establish that separation has actually occurred in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will need evidence in assistance 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, intend to live in Jamieson forever or otherwise be able to offer evidence that you lived in Australian for at least 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In circumstances where a couple has 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 arrangements have 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 dealt with as a member of that household, 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 actually been made.
As soon as a Divorce has actually taken effect, there is just a 12 month duration where to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period might be approved in situations where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
