DivorceIn Australia there is a requirement that you cannot get a divorce until you have been separated for 12 months (one year).

It is not uncommon that parties remain separated whilst under the same roof. If this is so in your circumstances, it will be necessary to satisfy the court that whilst living under the one roof, you were in fact separated.

At Anderson Boemi Lawyers, we can assist in preparing the necessary supporting affidavits which will be required by the court.

Not providing these affidavits, will lead to your matter being adjourned until the court is satisfied on the “living arrangements” whilst you were separated.
