A no-fault divorce principle operates under the Australian family law. That means a person does not have to justify why the marriage ended. The only legal requirement for getting a divorce is that there has been ‘irretrievable breakdown’ of the marriage and there is no likelihood that the parties will get back together.
The granting of a divorce simply recognizes that the marriage has ended but does not solve issues concerning support, property distribution or arrangements for children.
You must meet certain criteria before applying for divorce. If there are children aged under 18, a court can only grant a divorce if it is satisfied that proper arrangements are in place for them.
