Divorce Proceedings

In Australia, a divorce can be obtained where parties have been separated for at least 12 months, the marriage has broken down irretrievably, and there’s no chance of reconciliation. An Application for Divorce can either be filed by the parties jointly, or by one party separately.

A couple who is separated and still living under the same roof can apply for a divorce provided they satisfy the above requirements, but will also require Affidavits to prove that the marriage is over.
