Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Bungador
Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended.

In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This implies an individual can not request divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

If there are kids aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just approve a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate arrangements have actually been made for them.
Divorce procedures are conducted entirely separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no obligation on a party to start divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.
It is important to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to acquire.
