Prenup Red Hill Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Red Hill

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court has the ability to give a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day.
