What are the requirements for obtaining a divorce?


Australia has a “no fault” divorce system and courts do not consider whose fault it was that the marriage has broken down.

In Australia you can only apply for a divorce after you have been physically separated from your spouse for a period of at least twelve months. In a divorce application it is necessary to show that the marriage has broken down and there is no reasonable likelihood that you will get back together.
