Special requirements for applying for divorce within 2 years of marriage

Spread the love

Spouses who have been married for less than 2 years must meet special requirements before applying to the Family Law Courts for a divorce.

Spouses who have been married less than two years and want to apply for a divorce, must either:

1. Attend counselling with a family counsellor or nominated counsellor to  discuss the possibility of reconciliation with their spouse and obtain a certificate from the counsellor about that counselling.

 OR

2. Seek permission from the Family Law Court to apply for a divorce without counselling. 

For any issue relating to divorce, separation or family law, please contact our Family Law team by email family@mst.com.au or by telephone +61 8540 0200.
