Prenup Cosgrove Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Cosgrove

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 grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. 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 indicates a person can not make an application for divorce till the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.
