In Australia, to apply for a divorce you must meet the following requirements: 

1. Jurisdiction

Either you or your spouse must be an Australian citizen, live in Australia and intend to live in Australia indefinitely or consider Australia as your home.

2. Separation

You must have been separated for at least 12 months, meaning you and your spouse have lived separately and apart during this time. However, you can still be living under the same roof, provided that you are no longer living as a couple.

3. Service

You must have notified your spouse of the divorce application by providing them with a copy of the application.

Marriage of less than 2 years

If you have been married for less than two years, you are also required to attend counselling with a family counsellor or psychologist, or attend a family dispute resolution conference to discuss the possibility of reconciliation and the welfare of any children of the marriage.
