A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Banksia Peninsula, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce concept means that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any accusations of infidelity, violence or desertion are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has 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 marital relationship files the application, or a joint application where both parties submit the application together.
An application for Divorce is only offered after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a constant period and indicates more than physical separation where there is no possibility 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 actually not been separated for more than 12 months.
An application can still be made while the parties are residing under the very same roof or if one has provided the other with some household services. It might be tough to develop that separation has actually happened in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will need evidence in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period 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 established, you or your partner has to regard Australia as your home, plan to reside in Banksia Peninsula forever or otherwise have the ability to offer evidence that you resided 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 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 proper plans have actually been produced any child of the marital relationship, 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.
When a Divorce has been given the Divorce becomes efficient one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has worked, there is just a 12 month duration where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this duration may be approved in scenarios where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
