Divorce in New South Wales (NSW)

In NSW, divorce is governed by the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) and is the legal process of dissolving a marriage. The key aspects of divorce in NSW include:

  1. Grounds for divorce: The only ground for divorce in Australia is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, which is established by the couple living separately and apart for at least 12 months.
  2. Separation period: Couples must have been separated for at least 12 months before applying for a divorce.
  3. Joint or sole application: Divorce applications can be made jointly by both parties or by one party alone.
  4. Divorce order: If the court is satisfied that the legal requirements are met, it will grant a divorce order, which legally terminates the marriage.
  5. Ancillary matters: Divorce proceedings often involve ancillary matters such as property settlement, spousal maintenance, and parenting arrangements, which can be addressed through court orders or binding financial agreements.
  6. Remarriage: Once the divorce order becomes final (after a one-month period), the parties are free to remarry.

It’s crucial
 to seek legal advice and representation from experienced family lawyers to navigate the divorce process effectively and ensure that all legal requirements are met. Proper documentation and adherence to legal procedures are essential to avoid potential complications or delays.
