Divorce Law - Melbourne International Lawyers

What is Divorce?

Divorce, at its simplest, is the legal termination of a marriage under the law. It signifies the end of a marital bond and marks the initiation of a new chapter in your life. While some might believe divorce proceedings are complex and stressful, at Melbourne International Lawyers, we endeavor to make this process as straightforward and stress-free as possible.

Eligibility for Divorce in Victoria, Australia

Under the Family Law Act of Australia, you are eligible to apply for a divorce if you and your spouse have been separated for over 12 months, which indicates there's no reasonable likelihood of reconciliation. The marriage must have been for a minimum of three years. Additionally, even if you were married overseas, you're still eligible to apply for a divorce in Australia.
