CAN YOU APPLY FOR A DIVORCE?
Generally, you can apply for a divorce in Australia if either you or your spouse:
- regard Australia as your home and intend to live in Australia indefinitely, or
- are an Australian citizen, or
- ordinarily live in Australia and have done so for 12 months immediately before filing for divorce
You need to satisfy the Court that you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for at least 12 months, and there is no reasonable likelihood of resuming married life.
You could live together in the same home and still be separated
CONTESTING A SEPARATION DATE
We can help, if your spouse has applied for a divorce and you need to file a response because you disagree with your spouse’s divorce application.
Domestic violence can happen to anyone at any time.
If you are a victim of domestic violence or have received an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) or Family Violence Intervention Order, you must consult a lawyer immediately. We can assist you if you have been a victim of domestic violence or if you have received an application and need to respond to it.
