A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Kalorama, 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 adultery, 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 normally filed in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the application can either be a sole application where one party to the marital relationship 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 duration is to be a constant duration and implies more than physical separation where there is no probability 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 actually 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 provided the other with some household services. It may be hard to establish that separation has occurred in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will need proof in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will need 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 reside in Kalorama indefinitely or otherwise be able to offer 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 actually been married for less than 2 years, the Court needs 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 need to think about that proper plans have been made for 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.
When a Divorce has actually been granted the Divorce becomes efficient one month and one day after the Order has been made.
Once a Divorce has taken effect, there is only a 12 month period where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this duration might be given in scenarios where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
