Melbourne’s Leading Family and divorce Lawyers

Trusted Melbourne Family And Divorce Law Experts

We understand that separation and divorce can be stressful and emotional. At Nevett Ford, we take the stress away from you by assisting with applications for divorce or responding to applications for divorce. We also deal with clients seeking to annul their marriage and advise about the best way to approach these issues, keeping in mind the consequences of a nullity, a divorce, and impact this may have in relation to all parties involved. 

Are You Able to Apply For A Divorce?

You can apply for a divorce in Australia if either you or your spouse:

  • regard Australia as your home and intend to live in Australia indefinitely, or
  • are an Australian citizen by birth, descent or by grant of Australian citizenship, or
  • ordinarily live in Australia and have done so for 12 months immediately before filing for divorce.

You need to satisfy the Court that you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for at least 12 months, and there is no reasonable likelihood of resuming married life. It is possible to live together in the same home and still be separated.
