Prenup Teal Point Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Teal Point

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court has the ability to give 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 means an individual can not make an application for divorce up until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Teal Point to be separated however to continue living in the exact same house during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they have to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

Divorce procedures are performed completely separately from other proceedings between the husband and wife and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wishes to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is necessary to be mindful that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this period with the approval of the Court, and this is challenging to acquire.
