A divorce application in Perth can be made either by one party to a marriage, or both parties jointly.
For the divorce to be granted, the Family Court must be satisfied that the parties have been separated for a period of at least 12 months immediately preceding the application, and that appropriate arrangements have been made for any children involved.
In certain circumstances a divorce can be granted where parties are separated, though living under the same roof or where there have been short periods of reconciliation (totalling less than 3 months out of a 12-month period).
Our divorce and separation lawyers in Perth, WA, know and understand the application for a divorce can be a stressful and emotional process for you and/or your family involved. Which is why we provide quality legal assistance and advice throughout the process to help you make an informed decision.
