Prenup Broken Creek Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Broken Creek

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

It is possible for a couple in Broken Creek to be separated but to continue living in the very same house during the twelve months, which is known as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to prove to the Court that they were separated throughout this time.

However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they should make an application for a divorce.

It is important to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is hard to get.
