A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Newhaven, 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 allegations of adultery, violence or abandonment are unimportant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is generally 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 only available after a 12 month duration of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a constant period and implies more than physical separation where there is no probability of reconciliation.
The application can be opposed in circumstances where the Court does not have jurisdiction to deal with 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 same roof or if one has actually supplied the other with some household services. It might be difficult to develop that separation has taken place in these situations and accordingly the Court will need evidence 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, intend to live in Newhaven indefinitely or otherwise have the ability to offer evidence that you lived in Australian for at least 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 proper arrangements have 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 treated as a member of that home, and under the age of 18.
Once a Divorce has been approved the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has been made.
Once a Divorce has actually worked, there is just a 12 month duration where to submit an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration might be granted in scenarios where both parties accept the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
