A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Beaufort, 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 accusations of adultery, violence or desertion are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is normally 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 just available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous period and suggests more than physical separation where there is no possibility of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in situations 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 very same roof or if one has actually offered the other with some family services. It might be hard to establish that separation has actually taken place in these circumstances and accordingly the Court will need proof 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 person by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be established, you or your spouse needs to regard Australia as your home, plan to reside in Beaufort forever or otherwise be able to offer proof that you resided in Australian for a minimum of 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In circumstances where a couple has actually been wed 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 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 family, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has actually been granted the Divorce becomes efficient one month and one day after the Order has been made.
As soon as a Divorce has actually taken effect, there is just a 12 month duration in which to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. 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.
