When can I apply for divorce?

When can I apply for divorce?

Spouses can make an application for a divorce after 12 months and 1 day from their separation date. This can either be a joint application, where both parties make the application together, or a sole application, where one party makes an individual application. To have a successful application in Australia, the marriage must have broken down with no likelihood of getting back together. There is no need to establish that one spouse was “at fault” for the breakdown of the marriage.

Application for Divorce is the process entered into in order to obtain a divorce order, which formally terminates a marriage.

Contemplating a formal divorce can seem a daunting, unfamiliar and cold process.  We offer a fixed fee cost arrangement for standard  (contact our office for conditions) divorce matters that allows us to undertake the process on your behalf.

Separation and Divorce can impact other aspects of yours and your family’s legal rights. 

Some other matters for consideration when contemplating a Divorce are:

  • the time limits for making an application for property division or spousal maintenance;
  • whether there are any properties held as joint tenants with your spouse; and
  • to take urgent action to update your Will, Power of Attorney and beneficiary nominations (i.e. superannuation) to reflect the change in circumstances.

Our solicitors can provide you advice and assist you with all of the above.
