A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage.
In Mansfield, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle 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 marriage 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 only readily available after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous period 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 residing under the same roof or if one has actually provided the other with some home services. It may be difficult to develop that separation has occurred in these scenarios and appropriately the Court will require proof in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a duration of 12 months of separation, either you or your spouse will have 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, mean to reside in Mansfield forever or otherwise have the ability to offer proof that you resided in Australian for a minimum of 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In instances 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 appropriate plans have been made for any child of the marital relationship, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has actually or was adopted or who is treated as a member of that home, and under the age of 18.
As soon as a Divorce has been approved the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
Once a Divorce has worked, there is just a 12 month period where to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this period might be approved in scenarios where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

If an agreement is reached the terms of that agreement can be formalised through an Application for Consent Orders. If no contract can be reached, further negotiations can be set up with the help of solicitor, conciliators and counsellors Mansfield.
If no contract can be reached outside of the court system, an individual may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will need confirmation that the parties have tried a dispute resolution conference and are in receipt of the Certificate.
