Divorce is a painful and difficult time and can be very confusing and stressful; at O’Sullivan Law we make the process as simple and easy as possible. We understand that you would rather be anywhere than talking to us but you also must take care of your future and get a fair settlement.
Here is some general information about the process of divorce
A Divorce application is the formal ending of a marriage. You may obtain orders about children and property settlement before or after the Divorce Application. The divorce does not need to be agreed to by both parties.
However, once your Divorce is granted, you only have 12 months to commence any proceedings about property settlement or spousal maintenance. There is some provision for the Court to extend that deadline but it is only exercised in very limited circumstances.
Applications about children are not affected by the limitation period.
