Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to approve a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not request divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

Divorce proceedings are carried out completely individually from other proceedings between the couple and there is no responsibility on a party to start divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they need to apply for a divorce.

  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
