Family Law Report - 9 Issues of Family Separation
Issue 7: Divorce
If you are married, you can only apply to the Court for a divorce after you have been separated for a period of 12 months.
Separation can occur while the parties are living together (cohabitating), although most often separation will be one party physically leaves the marital home.
It is important to note that most couples who separate, resolve their property/financial issues well and truly prior to their divorce.
