It’s possible to apply for a divorce in Australia after being separated for a period of no less than one year. An application asking for divorce can be made by a single party or both parties cooperatively.
In some situations, a divorce can be given to a couple that still live together, even after separation, so long as they prove to the court that they are not staying as a married couple.
In cases where there are children involved who are below 18 years old, a divorce can only be granted by the court if it is convinced that the required plans to take care of the welfare of those children have been made. Spousal maintenance may be included in the arrangements aimed at taking care of the children and our divorce lawyers can offer help in these cases which contain spousal maintenance.
Getting a divorce influences the limit of time given by the Family Court in which a petition for property settlement has to be started. Also, divorce has the consequence of invalidating the will of a party and making it subject to the divorce obtained.
