Legal Aspects of Separation and Divorce
Under the Family Law Act there is only one ground for divorce, that being that the marriage has broken down beyond repair. This is established by separation of no less than 12 months. If there was a brief reconciliation (of no more than three months) then the Court can calculate the period of separation before and after reconciliation as one continuous period.
