Divorce: Getting a “Dissolution” Order
Family Proceedings Act 1980, ss 37–43
If you want to end your marriage or civil union, you’ll need to apply to the Family Court for a “dissolution” – the legal term for a divorce. This section will use the legal word “dissolution” to refer to a divorce.
Nowadays, there’s basically only one requirement that has to be satisfied for you to get a dissolution: the two of you have to have been living apart for two years.
