Going through a separation can be an emotional and stressful experience.
At Stone Group Lawyers we are here to assist you in the divorce application process. Getting a divorce is the official legal ending of a marriage. Once your divorce has been finalised by a court you will be able to re-marry one month and one day afterwards.
If you are married and have been separated for over one year, you are able to apply for a divorce through the Family Court Australia. The only main requirement is that the relationship is ‘irretrievably broken down’ and there is no likelihood of getting back together. One main misconception commonly experienced by parties is that your partner must agree to the divorce. In Australia you are able to apply for a divorce on your own as it does not matter why or whose fault it was when the marriage broke down.
At Stone Group Lawyers we can assist in the preparation of a divorce application, and ensure that you have met all legal requirements for a successful application. Depending on your situation, you may be required to attend a divorce hearing in court. If this is the case, our lawyers will prepare you and help you through this process.
