Restraining Order Brim Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Brim

Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This means that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to grant a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple should has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This means a person can not request divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Brim to be separated but to continue residing in the exact same house throughout the twelve months, which is called ‘separation under the one roof’. If the couple is separated under the one roof they need to show to the Court that they were separated during this time.

If there are kids aged under 18 years of age, a Court will only give a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate plans have been made for them.

Divorce procedures are performed totally separately from other proceedings in between the husband and wife and there is no commitment on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. Nevertheless if either party to the marriage wants to re-marry they must make an application for a divorce.

It is very important to be aware that procedures for property settlement and spousal maintenance should be started within one year of the divorce. Applications can just be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to acquire.

  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
