Prenup Shannonvale Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Shannonvale

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 give a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marriage has actually broken down irretrievably the couple must has been separated for a minimum of twelve months and one day. This implies a person can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.
