What Does Living Separately Actually Imply When it comes to Divorce in NSW?

Living independently does not mean that the two separating individuals must live in divergent dwellings, what must be proven is that the relationship has ended.

Where children are involved, those under the age of eighteen must be brought to the awareness of the Court to prove that suitable arrangements have been made for their well-being.

Additional Questions Concerning Filing for Divorce in NSW:

Right after separation, you can take action concerning all other matters like spousal maintenance, property settlement, child support, and arrangement for children. There is no need to hold these matters off until you are divorced.

Court procedures for spousal maintenance and property settlements must begin within one year of the divorce order becoming final. Beyond this point, you must request special-leave from the Court to follow up with a defence for spousal maintenance and property settlement.

This is where the assistance of Aaron Legal’s Family Law Lawyer is of the utmost importance. If your solicitor is aware of your entire situation from the beginning, you are better equipped to come away with a more equitable settlement.

When is a Divorce Final in NSW?

If the Court discovers that the separation conditions have been fulfilled, they will confer a Divorce Order. However, this does not normally take until one month and one day following the hearing. Marriage is not permitted until the Order takes effect.

Are Shorter Marriages Treated Differently?

In a word, yes. If you have been married for less than twenty-four months, you will be handled differently by the Court. In this situation, you will not be able to apply for divorce until you and your spouse agree to attend a counselling session, unless there are unusual circumstances such as domestic violence.

If you have been married for under two years and are considering separation, contact Aaron Legal.
