    You have to be separated for 12 months before you can apply for a divorce in this country, and you also need to meet the requirements of citizenship - namely that you've resided in Australia for 12 months and consider it your usual home.

    Thanks you for reading and giving a valuable suggestion.

    We have already separated for more than 12 months. She is India and I am in Australia right now.

    What can I do?
