Australian Law operates on the concept of no-fault divorce. This implies that a court does rule out why the marriage ended.

  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and causes them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.
