A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Mount Beauty, the Family Law Act 1975 established the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle indicates 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 submitted 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 file the application together.
An application for Divorce is just available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation duration is to be a continuous period and suggests more than physical separation where there is no probability 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 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 offered the other with some family services. It may be difficult to develop that separation has actually happened in these situations and accordingly the Court will require evidence in assistance of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period 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 established, you or your partner needs to regard Australia as your home, mean to reside in Mount Beauty forever or otherwise have the ability to supply evidence that you lived in Australian for at least 12 months prior to the filing of the application.
In instances where a couple has been wed for less than 2 years, the Court requires 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 need to consider that correct plans have been produced any child of the marital relationship, 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 approved the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has actually taken effect, there is only a 12 month duration in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration may be approved in scenarios where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
