This is the formalising of the breakdown of a marriage. The parties need to be separated for at least 12 months before they can apply for a divorce.
If at that time they have been married for less than 2 years, they will also be required to undergo marriage counselling.
The Family Court will need to be satisfied that the proper arrangements have been made for any children under the age of 18 years old. You do not require any Court orders to this effect.
You do not have to have finalised any property settlement prior to seeking a divorce, however, when the divorce becomes final you have 12 months to either reach an agreement or commence proceedings in the Family Court.
