Divorce with no blame and with minimal conflict

With professional legal advice and support, a divorce can go ahead without adding more stress and emotional pain to a situation that is already very hard.

Since 1975, Australian law has not blamed either spouse for the breakdown of a marriage, and while Courts are involved – they consider the facts of every divorce case – it isn’t always necessary to appear in Court for long. All you need to show is that your married relationship has broken down and can’t recover. This is demonstrated in law by a 12-month separation; you and your spouse could live separately or even in the same home, but what you need to show is that your married relationship is over.

Separation and Divorces in Court

Divorce cases are heard in the Family Court or the Federal Circuit Court. Often, both spouses do agree to divorce and divide their property without the Court having to make decisions for them. The Court can then grant Consent Orders.

However, sometimes it isn’t possible for an agreement to be reached. Court hearings can be very emotional, stressful and anxiety inducing.  

Rest assured that whatever your situation, at Mahony Family Lawyers we have the knowledge and the dedication to negotiate and argue for your rights and your needs, while helping you find ways to support yourself in your community at what will be a stressful time in your life.

Separated But Living Under One Roof – What Does This Mean For My Divorce?

In Australia, the only ground for divorce is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably, that is, that there is no prospect of the parties resuming the relationship.
