A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Newstead, the Family Law Act 1975 established 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 accusations of infidelity, violence or abandonment are unimportant. 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 marital relationship submits the application, or a joint application where both parties submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is only available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a constant duration and indicates more than physical separation where there is no likelihood 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 same roof or if one has actually offered the other with some home services. It may be hard to develop that separation has taken place in these circumstances and accordingly the Court will require evidence in assistance 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 resident by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your partner has to regard Australia as your home, mean to live in Newstead indefinitely or otherwise be able to offer proof 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 consider that appropriate plans have 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 household, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has been approved the Divorce becomes effective one month and one day after the Order has been made.
As soon as a Divorce has taken effect, there is only a 12 month duration in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period might be given in scenarios where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
