In Australia all resolutions are
based on the Family Law Principles such as no fault divorce, best interests of
the child, parental responsibilities, property division and dispute resolution.
Family Law Act 1975 established the principle of no-fault divorce in Australian
law. This means that a court does not consider which partner was at fault in
the marriage breakdown. The only ground for divorce is the irretrievable
breakdown of the relationship, demonstrated by 12 months of separation.
a court is making a parenting order, the Family Law Act requires it to regard
the best interests of the child as the most important consideration. Parents
must also use this principle when making parenting plans.
