Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This indicates that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court has the ability to approve a divorce if there has actually been an irretrievable breakdown of marriage. In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This indicates an individual can not make an application for divorce until the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Buchan South to be separated but to continue living in the same house throughout 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 prove to the Court that they were separated during this time.

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

Divorce procedures are conducted entirely separately from other proceedings between the couple and there is no obligation on a party to begin divorce proceedings before doing something about it in relation to any other aspect of the marriage breakdown. However if either party to the marital relationship wants to re-marry they need to request a divorce.
