What constitutes a divorce?
Divorce is the termination of a marital union, and involves the cancelling of legal responsibilities and duties of the marriage as well as dissolving of the ties of matrimony between a married couple. In Australia, we have a no-fault divorce system, which requires no allegation or proof of fault of either party.
You can apply for a divorce if either you or your spouse:
- consider Australia as your home and intend to live in Australia indefinitely, or
- are an Australian citizen (by birth, descent or by grant of Australian citizenship), or
- live in Australia ordinarily and have done so for at least 12 months before filing for divorce.
The Court will need to be satisfied that you and your spouse have be separated (lived separately and apart) for at least 12 months, and that there is no likelihood of resuming married life. It is considered possible to be living together in the same home and still be separated.
