What are the grounds for a divorce in Australia?

There is one ground only in Australia - namely, irretrievable breakdown. This is evidenced by a 12 month separation period. This usually means the establishment of two separate households. Fault (such as adultery, cruelty, etc) are not relevant to this issue. This is set out in Section 48 of the Family Law Act.
