A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Bayswater, 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 allegations of infidelity, violence or desertion are irrelevant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is typically 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 only offered 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 residing under the exact same roof or if one has actually provided the other with some home services. It might be tough to develop that separation has actually happened in these circumstances and appropriately the Court will need 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 need to be an Australia citizen by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be established, you or your partner has to regard Australia as your home, plan to live in Bayswater 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 actually been married for less than 2 years, the Court requires 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 have to consider that appropriate arrangements have actually been made for 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 family, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has actually been approved the Divorce ends up being efficient one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
As soon as a Divorce has actually worked, there is only a 12 month duration where to file an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this period may be given in scenarios where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
