Applying for Divorce
In Australia, you do not have to apply for divorce or be divorced in order to legally resolve your parenting and property matters. Divorce, in this sense, is an independent legal process. You may commence it at Court once you have been separated for at least 12 months and there is no prospect of reconciliation.

However, you need to file an application for property settlement at Court within 12 months of the date the divorce order comes into effect.
