Divorce in South Australia


In order to apply for a divorce in South Australia, the divorce application should be submitted to the Australian Federal Circuit Court in accordance with the Family Court's Practice Direction 6 of 2003. In order to be eligible to apply for a divorce in South Australia, you must prove that either you or your spouse have a connection with Australia and that you or your spouse live in Australia at the time of application and that either you or your spouse is a citizen of Australia.

 

You can apply for divorce in South Australia irrespective of the fact that your spouse doesn't want a divorce, however if you and your spouse want a divorce, you can both file the application together. The advantage of filing the application together is that the other spouse does not have to serve the divorce application. Applications for divorce can now be submitted online and if you wish to file for divorce online, you can do so by registering on the Federal Circuit Court page entitled' How do I register for the Commonwealth Court Portal?

 

If you encounter any difficulties when filing for a easy divorce in Australia using the Internet and are unable to apply for divorce online yourself, you can get a legal aid grant to help pay a lawyer to represent you in filing a divorce request. You must provide your marriage certificate to file for a divorce in South Australia. You don't have to furnish this if the court has it through other proceedings, but if you can't furnish your marriage certificate, you'll have to furnish your application with an affidavit stating why you don't furnish it or give a specific time when you're going to furnish it to the court. If your marriage was done in South Australia, by applying to the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Office, you can get a copy of your marriage certificate.

 

You will need to apply to that country's authority in cases where your marriage was conducted overseas. You will also need to make a translated copy of your marriage certificate in another language by an accredited translator. For more information, see the 2001 Federal Circuit Courts Rules. After filing for a divorce, you are not allowed to remarry or set marriage dates. A cheap divorce in Australia will not be effective until a divorce order is finalized.
