Prenup Pines Forest Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Pines Forest

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does rule out why the marriage ended. The Court is able to give a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This implies a person 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 Pines Forest to be separated but to continue living in the same home throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘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 during this time.
