A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Auburn South, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept suggests that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of adultery, 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 marriage files the application, or a joint application where both parties submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is just available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a constant duration and implies 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 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 living under the very same roof or if one has actually provided the other with some family services. It might be hard to develop that separation has happened in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will require evidence in support 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 established, you or your spouse has to regard Australia as your home, plan to reside in Auburn South indefinitely 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 actually been married for less than 2 years, the Court needs 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 correct plans 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 dealt with as a member of that home, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has actually been approved the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has 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 may be approved in scenarios where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
