Visitation Rights Crossley Divorce And Separation Lawyers In Crossley

Australian Law operates on the principle of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does not consider why the marital relationship ended. The Court is able to give a divorce if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of marital relationship.
