What is considered as getting Divorced?
In short, divorce is the legal process of ending a marriage. It's a court-ordered dissolution of a marital union and legally separates the couple, allowing them to re-marry in the future.
The process of divorce can be complex and emotional, involving issues such as property division, child custody, and spousal support.
In order to file for divorce, certain requirements must be met such as living separately for a certain period of time, and proving that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
It's important to note that the reason for the breakdown of the marriage is not relevant in the divorce process. The court only needs to be satisfied that the marriage has broken down and the couple has lived separately for a certain period of time.
What if there are children involved?
The welfare and best interests of the child are the paramount consideration in any legal proceedings involving children. The Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) sets out the principles that the court must consider when making decisions about children, including the need to protect the child from physical or psychological harm, the need to provide for the child's emotional and intellectual needs, and the need to give the child the opportunity to develop a meaningful relationship with both parents.
When it comes to child custody and visitation, the court will consider the child's age, maturity, and level of understanding, as well as the child's relationship with each parent, any siblings, and other relatives. The court will also take into account the child's own views and preferences, as well as any history of abuse or neglect.
