We are New Zealanders living in Australia. We were married in New Zealand in 2005. Now we have separated and want to divorce. Do we come under New Zealand law or Australian law. we separated 21/06/2014. So can I apply to Australian authorities for divorce or do I have to apply through New Zealand? You have to be separated 2 years in New Zealand and only 1 in Australia, so I would really like to become divorced quicker.
