In Australia, you may apply for a divorce where:
- you have been separated for more than 12 months;
- there is evidence of the marriage (such as a marriage certificate);
- the marriage has irretrievably broken down (ie- there is no reasonable likelihood that you will reconcile);
- the Court has jurisdiction (for example: you are Australian citizens, you intend to live in Australia indefinitely, you ordinarily lived in Australia for at least 12 months prior to making an application).
Our team at The Small Business Lawyer can assist you with a divorce application.
