A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Montgomery, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle suggests that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any allegations of adultery, violence or abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is usually 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 duration is to be a continuous duration and indicates more than physical separation where there is no likelihood of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in scenarios 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 living under the exact same roof or if one has provided the other with some household 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 duration of 12 months of separation, either you or your partner will need to be an Australia resident 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 Montgomery 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 circumstances where a couple has 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 actually 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 given the Divorce ends up being reliable one month and one day after the Order has been made.
When a Divorce has taken effect, there is just a 12 month duration in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this period might be given in scenarios where both parties agree to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.

If no arrangement can be reached outside of the court system, a person may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require verification that the parties have actually tried a conflict resolution conference and are in receipt of the Certificate. There are exceptions in obtaining this Certificate prior to the start of Court proceedings.
