The one condition you need to meet to get a divorce in Australia

Many people think that you need a good reason to get a divorce, such as hiring a private investigator or proving that you are incompatible with your spouse. However, under Australian law, you do not need a good reason to file for divorce.

In fact, the judge will only consider one thing: whether the marriage is beyond repair. So, how do you prove that a marriage is beyond repair?

There is a legal way to do this: if both parties have been separated for more than 12 months, this is sufficient evidence to prove that the marriage is beyond repair.

Therefore, if you want to get a divorce in Australia, you must be separated from your spouse for more than 12 months.
