Divorce

The Divorce Process in Australia is a “no fault divorce” system. This means that you can divorce your former partner and you do not need to  explain the reason or  show fault.

The only criteria that is required is that the marriage has “broken down irretrievably” and there is no likelihood that you and your former partner will resume your marriage. To show that your marriage has broken down irretrievably you must prove that you and your former partner have been separated for 12 months.

It is common for people to separate, “living under the one roof,” if this is your situation, then you will simply need to prove to the Court that you are separated even though you are living under the one roof, and the best way to show this is by affidavit evidence.

Joint or Sole Divorce Applications

The Divorce process allows you to file your divorce jointly or individually. If it is done individually then it is important that the Divorce Application is served upon your former partner.
