Restraining Order Harrietville Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Harrietville

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 has the ability to grant a divorce if there has 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 a minimum of twelve months and one day. This means an individual can not request divorce till the parties have actually been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Harrietville to be separated but to continue residing in the exact same home during the twelve months, which is referred to as ‘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 approve a divorce if it is satisfied that appropriate arrangements have actually been made for them.

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

It is essential to be aware that proceedings for property settlement and spousal maintenance must be begun within one year of the divorce. Applications can only be made after this duration with the approval of the Court, and this is difficult to obtain.
