The following conditions need to be satisfied to be eligible to divorce your spouse:
- You must be legally married;
- You need to have been separated for a minimum of 12 months;
- There needs to be no reasonable prospect of reconciling with your spouse;
- You and your spouse are Australian citizens or residents or regard Australia as your permanent home.
If you have been married for less than 2 years or you are wanting to have your marriage annulled with the help of a divorce lawyer, then there are additional conditions which apply.
Within 12 months of divorcing your spouse you need to reach a property settlement otherwise you will lose the right to ask the court for a property settlement. There are circumstances when a court will allow a property settlement after 12 months although these are very limited.
The divorce process can take on average 4 months from the application date and receiving the decree nisi of divorce. When the decree nisi is received you are divorced.
