When applying for a divorce, the Court does not take account the causes of marriage breakdown. It only requires that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. If you are married and you have been separated for at least twelve months, you can apply to the Court for a divorce.
It is important you are aware of the requirements to proceed with a Divorce Application. This is not an exhaustive list, however it includes:
Separation under one roof may be accepted by the Courts as part of the two year requirement, however they will consider a range of factors such as:
Whether or not the parties separated their financial affairs after the separation.
Phillips Green & Associates will arrange service of documents and appear in Court on your behalf to ensure that you do not need to attend. We will also identify whether you are eligible for a reduced filing fee when filing your Divorce Application.
Once the criteria has been met, the divorce will be finalised one month after the divorce was granted.
