Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marital relationship ended.

This means an individual can not apply for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Powers Creek to be separated but to continue living in the same home throughout the twelve months, which is known as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need to show to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just grant a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are performed entirely separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown.
