Divorce Requirements

To file for divorce, there are certain criteria that must be met.  Australian courts do not need a specific reason for the request for a divorce. However, you and your partner will need to have been separated for 12 months prior to filing.

If you have made the decision to end the marriage within 2 years, you will be required to attend counseling and obtain a certificate from the counselor prior to applying for a divorce.

Other requirements for a divorce include:

  • A marriage certificate to prove you were married,
  • Proof that you have been separated for at least 12 months
  • No reasonable prospect that you will reunite with your spouse
  • You and your spouse are Australian residents or citizens or regard Australia as your permanent home

We understand how overwhelming the process can feel, especially when it is concerning something so personal. This is why we are committed to helping you through the entire process.
