International Family Law

Foreign Marriages

A foreign marriage that is recognised under the law of the place of the marriage will be recognised in Australia unless:

  • either party was at the time of the marriage already married under Australian law to another person;
  • either party was not of “marital age”.  This means eighteen years in respect of persons domiciled in Australia, and sixteen years in respect of persons domiciled elsewhere;
  • if the parties were within personal relationships prohibited by Australian law;
  • if the marriage lacked consent or a party had mental incapacity to understand the ceremony.

A party to an invalid marriage not recognised in Australia would not be able to make application under the Family Law Act for the division of property or spousal maintenance.  They may have entitlements under the various De facto (Relationships) Acts of individual Australian states.  A foreign marriage may allow a spouse to make an application to a foreign court even if one of those spouses resided in Australia.

International Divorce Representation

Family lawyers can provide quality legal services specifically tailored for people involved in international divorces.

Married business and professional people who spend lots of time overseas - increasingly the thing to do when building a business, or just having fun, in the global village - become ever more subject to an increasing number of legal jurisdictions.

The model of a family unit that has a single permanent residency is becoming increasingly outmoded. But, in spite of the trend towards globalization, there continue to be very sharp differences between the divorce laws of many different countries -- and even between the laws of different provinces or states within the same country. In addition, the procedures of courts in different countries vary enormously.

As a result, the decision about which law applies to a divorce, custody, support or other matrimonial case and the decision as to which court will hear the case can have an enormous impact on the eventual outcome of the case. These issues are often extremely complex and confusing, even to lawyers are very familiar with the laws of their local jurisdiction.

Foreign Divorces

An overseas divorce which complies with the law of an overseas jurisdiction is recognised in Australia provided that either party had a sufficient connection with the foreign country.  For example, that one of the parties resided in the foreign country, or had domicile or nationality in the foreign country.  A foreign divorce may be refused recognition in Australia if:

  1. a party to the marriage was denied natural justice in respect of the hearing.  That is, that they had not been provided due notice of the proceedings or had not been given the opportunity to be heard at the hearing;
  2. recognition of the divorce would be contrary to Australian public policy.

It can be difficult to adjust to your new circumstances and this can impact on your mental health.

Worrying about the impact of relationship breakdown, separation and divorce on children can add to the stress of the situation.

There are a range of services available which provide assistance and support to those experiencing relationship breakdown, separation and divorce. Family Relationship Centres are a first port of call for families seeking help. Through information and referral, the centres help families strengthen relationships and deal with relationship difficulties.

Changes to Australia's family law system introduced since July 2006 means that individuals wanting to apply to the court for a parenting order must first attempt family dispute resolution if appropriate. If family dispute resolution is not appropriate or an agreement not reached then a certificate can be obtained from a registered family dispute resolution practitioner confirming an attempt at family dispute resolution was made.

Note: There are some exceptions to this requirement, such as cases involving family violence or child abuse.

Family Relationship centres can also refer individuals, couples and families to a range of other helpful services to enhance family relationships.
