A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Mandurang, the Family Law Act 1975 established 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 infidelity, violence or abandonment are irrelevant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is typically submitted 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 file 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 continuous duration and indicates 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 not been separated for more than 12 months.
An application can still be made while the parties are living under the exact same roof or if one has actually supplied the other with some family services. It may be tough to develop that separation has happened in these scenarios and accordingly the Court will require proof in assistance of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will have to be an Australia person by birth, decent or otherwise. If that can not be developed, you or your spouse needs to regard Australia as your home, mean to live in Mandurang forever or otherwise be able to offer proof that you lived in Australian for at least 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In circumstances where a couple has been wed 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 need to consider that proper plans have actually been made for 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.
Once a Divorce has actually been granted the Divorce becomes efficient one month and one day after the Order has been made.
When a Divorce has actually worked, there is only a 12 month period where to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period may be granted in scenarios where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

Applications for Parenting Orders can be brought by either or both of the parents, a grandparent or other significant person in a child’s life.
Prior to the commencement of any Court proceedings the parties are required to participate in, participate and make a real effort in solving any parenting issues at a family conflict resolution conference. Following completion of this conference, a Certificate is issued to the parties.
If a contract is reached the terms of that contract can be formalised through an Application for Permission Orders. If no arrangement can be reached, even more settlements can be set up with the assistance of solicitor, mediators and counsellors Mandurang.
If no agreement can be reached outside of the court system, a person might then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require verification that the parties have actually tried a disagreement resolution conference and are in invoice of the Certificate. There are exceptions in getting this Certificate prior to the start of Court proceedings.
In parenting matters, a Court must regard the very best interests of the child as the vital factor to consider.
