The process of obtaining a divorce is relatively straightforward and can often be done by the parties themselves without the need for lawyers.
The requirements before filing for a divorce are that:
1. The marriage has irretrievably broken down, and
2. The two of you have been living separately and apart for at least twelve months.
It is also important to recognise that property proceedings must be commenced in Court within twelve months of a divorce being granted.
The Application for Divorce is available for parties to obtain from the Family Court website, or alternatively from our offices.
