Prenup Swan Marsh Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Swan Marsh

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

It is possible for a couple in Swan Marsh to be separated but to continue residing in the very same home during the twelve months, which is called ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need to prove to the Court that they were separated during this time.

If there are children aged under 18 years of age, a Court will just give a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for them.

Divorce proceedings are carried out entirely individually from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no responsibility on a party to begin divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown. However if either party to the marriage wishes to re-marry they must apply for a divorce.

It is important to be conscious that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is tough to obtain.

  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
