Under Australian Law one party can decide to end a marriage.
Australia has a no-fault divorce process. This means it doesn't matter WHY the marriage ended.
As long as you have been separated for 12 months, you can apply for a divorce.
It does not have to be complicated; divorce is the ending of your legal union. It is not the same as dividing your property or making arrangements for your children.
Some clients prefer to initiate divorce proceedings on their own, via online systems. While these will achieve a similar outcome, it is important to note that once a divorce is granted, time limits relating to the division of property come in to play.
