You can apply for a divorce in Australia after you have been separated for at least 12 months. An application for divorce can be made by one party or both parties jointly.
In certain circumstances, a divorce can be granted where a couple has separated and still live together, provided they satisfy the court that they are not living as husband and wife.
If there are children aged under 18 years old, the Court can only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for the welfare of those children. These arrangements may include spousal maintenance, and in these cases where spousal maintenance does exist, our divorce lawyers can assist.
