Your Divorce Lawyers Melbourne

Bringing a marriage to an end through a formal separation is something that Argent Law divorce lawyers Melbourne can help you with.

What often surprises clients who are seeking such services is that under Australian law (applicable in all states and territories) there is only one ground for divorce – being the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage.

Australian law provides for a “no-fault” divorce system, which means it is not necessary to prove to the Court with evidence of any wrongdoing to a party.  Furthermore, the legal ending of a marriage will not, in itself, change the outcome of any property settlement or parenting dispute.

The only evidence that is required to prove an “irretrievable breakdown” of the marriage is one year of separation of the couple.

If your marriage is less than two years you and your former partner are required to attend upon a family counselor or nominated counselor to discuss the possibility of reconciliation with your spouse.

Divorce Applications

Applications can be made solely (by one party alone) or jointly (where both parties agree to the divorce Order being made, and they jointly apply to the Court for a Divorce Order).

The application fee payable to the Federal Circuit Court of Australia is $945.

Unfortunately, however, the process in Australia can appear to be deceptively simple and that is why it can be of benefit to clients to instruct solicitors to represent them in their legal Divorce.

Matters of filing and serving court documents, evidence relating to “separation under one roof”, information regarding the care of minor children of a marriage, and of course the hearing itself (if a party is required to attend) can cause unnecessary stress and difficulty for parties applying for a Divorce – and our divorce lawyers can make this process as fast, painless and cost-effective as possible.
