Hi I am just reading this now
Unfortunately under New Zealand law there is no way to reduce the period of separation below the required 2 years as grounds for the divorce. The only ways do not apply to your situation, which are about fraud or a misunderstanding as to the marriage, but going back to when you got married.
You can apply theough Inland Revenue for child support and this is enforceable in Australia. and you can force a sale of the property. The period of time for divorce in Australia is one year however and if you have a lawyer acting in Australia, you should discuss whether you can apply there.
