A divorce is a Court Order that severs your marriage.
You do not need to prove that a person was at fault, but there are several factors that must be adhered to in order to be eligible for a divorce.
It is important to note that a divorce will not determine issues of financial support, property distribution or arrangements for children. It simply recognises that the marriage has ended.
Once a divorce has been obtained, you have 12 months to finalise a property settlement.
Unfortunately there isn’t much you can do to stop a divorce these days. Fault or no-fault, one party can apply to sever the marriage if they want to.
You can only dispute the divorce where:
You do not need to attend the hearing. If you disagree or object to the facts of the divorce documents, you may file a response to the Court within 28 days of being served with the divorce documents. However, the Court may still decide to grant a Divorce Order despite your objections unless there is a mistake in law.
✘ NO – If there are no children under the age of 18.
✘ NO – if there are children under the age of 18 and you have made a joint application.
✓ YES – if there is a child under the age of 18 and you lodged a sole application, you need to attend.
It is possible for you and your spouse to be separated but to continue living in the same home during the 12 months before applying for divorce. This is known as ‘separation under the one roof’. If this applies to your situation, you need to prove to the Court that you were separated during this time.
You need to have been married for at least 2 years and separated for 12 months before you can apply for a divorce. The time starts from the date of your marriage to the date you file your application. If you have been married less than 2 years, you can still apply for a divorce if you have a counsellor’s certificate to verify that the relationship is irreconcilable.

A huge thank you to Liza for the favourable outcome in my Family Court Proceeding. After quite a few hiccups at a different firm, Liza took over the case and her level of expertise was 2nd to none. I don’t think I would have gotten the same outcome if it hadn’t have been for Liza. I would highly recommend Liza for all your family law needs.
