A married couple, or a party to that married couple, who is seeking a divorce is choosing to end their marriage.
To be eligible for a divorce, you need to satisfy the Court that you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for at least 12 months, and there is no reasonable likelihood of resuming married life. It is possible to live together in the same home and still be separated. If there are children aged under 18, a court can only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for them. If you are seeking a divorce but have been married for less than 2 years, you will need to file a counselling certificate. To obtain a counselling certificate you will need to attend counselling.
Whilst the emotional turmoil of a divorce may be difficult, a divorce application can be taken care of with the assistance of one of our family law lawyers.
