WHAT IS FAMILY DIVORCE LAW IN AUSTRALIA?

If you’re at the start of the journey, you might be wondering if you have grounds for a divorce. Australia has operated on a  no-fault system since 1976, meaning there’s no need to show wrong-doings by either party if you want to file for a divorce.

The sole ground for divorce is the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage, which will need to be proven with at least a twelve-month separation period.

A divorce is simply the formal recognition that parties are no longer married. Your divorce lawyer in Geelong can also explain the important ramifications of a divorce in relation to timelines for your financial settlements, your Will and other succession planning issues.
