Prenup Timor Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Timor

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marriage ended. The Court is able to approve 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 indicates a person can not apply for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Timor to be separated but to continue living in the same house throughout the twelve months, which is known 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.
