A Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marital relationship.
In Newport, the Family Law Act 1975 developed the no-fault Divorce system. This no-fault Divorce principle means that a Court will not consider who was at fault for the breakdown of the relationship. Any accusations of adultery, violence or desertion are irrelevant. The only ground for Divorce is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
Any application for Divorce is usually 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 readily available after a 12 month period of separation. This 12 month separation period is to be a continuous period and indicates 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 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 very same roof or if one has actually offered the other with some home services. It may be hard to establish that separation has actually taken place in these circumstances and appropriately the Court will need proof in support of the application.
In addition to the requirements of a period of 12 months of separation, either you or your spouse will have to be an Australia citizen 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 Newport indefinitely or otherwise be able to supply 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 actually 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 think about that correct arrangements have actually 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 treated as a member of that household, and under the age of 18.
When a Divorce has actually been granted the Divorce ends up being effective one month and one day after the Order has actually been made.
When a Divorce has taken effect, there is only a 12 month duration where to file an application for property/financial and spousal maintenance. An extension to this duration might be approved in circumstances 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, an individual may then make an application to the Court. An application to Court will require verification that the parties have attempted a dispute resolution conference and are in receipt of the Certificate. There are exceptions in getting this Certificate prior to the start of Court proceedings.
