A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Munro, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept implies that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of adultery, 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 usually 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 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 circumstances 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 same roof or if one has actually provided the other with some home services. It may be hard to establish that separation has occurred in these scenarios and appropriately the Court will need evidence in assistance of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a duration of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will have to be an Australia resident by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your spouse has to regard Australia as your home, intend to reside in Munro forever 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 been wed for less than 2 years, the Court requires the parties to attend 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 think about that appropriate arrangements have actually 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 family, and under the age of 18.
Once a Divorce has been given the Divorce becomes effective one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has worked, there is only a 12 month duration where to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period might be approved in scenarios where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

Prior to the commencement of any Court proceedings the parties are required to attend, get involved and make an authentic attempt in dealing with any parenting issues at a household disagreement resolution conference. Following conclusion of this conference, a Certificate is released to the parties.
If an agreement is reached the regards to that arrangement can be formalised through an Application for Permission Orders. If no contract can be reached, further settlements can be organized with the assistance of solicitor, mediators and counsellors Munro.
If no contract can be reached outside of the court system, an individual might then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require confirmation that the parties have attempted a dispute resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate. There are exceptions in obtaining this Certificate prior to the commencement of Court procedures.
In parenting matters, a Court needs to regard the very best interests of the child as the paramount factor to consider.
