Frequently Asked Questions

While you need to have been separated from your partner for at least 12 months before making an application for divorce, you can still be living under the same roof for financial reasons. You may regard your marriage as over but continue to live in the same residence.

An application for divorce can be made by you or your spouse, or it can be made jointly. If you are making the application on your own, you will need to satisfy the Court that your spouse has been properly served and is on notice of the application.

If you have children under the age of 18 years, you will be required to attend Court for the hearing of the application. The Court will need to be satisfied that proper arrangements have been put in place for the children. See our page on Parenting agreements and orders.

Family Law

When couples separate, they need to fairly divide their property that they acquired during their relationship. Property in this case doesn’t just mean real estate.

De Facto Couples

If you have been in a relationship where you were not legally married, you may be considered a de-facto couple.

Same Sex Couples

Under the Family Law, same sex couples have the same rights in both de facto relationships and in marriage as heterosexual couples.
