Divorce

Australia has a no fault divorce system. This means that the Court is not concerned as to why the marriage ended.

How to Get a Divorce

To obtain a divorce, all that is required is that;

  • You and your spouse lived separately and apart for a period of at least 12 months; and
  • There is no likelihood of resumption of marriage. and 
  • You or your spouse regard Australia as home or intend to live in Australia; or
  • You or your spouse are an Australian citizen, or
  • You or your spouse have lived in Australia for 12 months prior to filing for divorce.

You can make an application for divorce either by yourself or together with your spouse. If you have children under the age of 18, the Court will require that the applicant appears to satisfy the Court that there are arrangements in relation to the children before a divorce is granted.

A divorce order will become absolute after 30 days of it being granted. A divorce is a legal end to your marriage, however, it does not resolve matters surrounding parenting or property matters.

Child Support

In accordance with the law, parents are legally obligated to provide financial aid for their children.

Child Support is calculated in accordance with an eight-step formula and is administered by the Department of Human Services – Child Support Agency.

However, parents can agree to opt out of the Child Support Agency assessment by entering into a Binding Child Support Agreement. A Binding Child Support Agreement that is properly drawn up is enforceable.

Binding Child Support Agreement does not necessarily have to deal with a cash payment; it can also include matters such as payment of medical expenses and school fees.
