STOP. If you have children or property and you are struggling to agree on arrangements around these issues you should seek legal advice prior to applying for a divorce.
If you have already reached an agreement and don’t require legal advice check out the Federal Circuit Court’s DIY Divorce Kit.
Don’t have time and want a professional to complete the application for you? We charge a flat fee of $600 plus GST and disbursements (such as filing and service fees).
Divorce is the official ending of a marriage. When a divorce order is made final, you can remarry.
The only requirement for a divorce is the ‘irretrievable breakdown’ of the marriage. This is proved by both spouses having been separated for 12 months with no likelihood of getting back together.
Your partner does not have to agree to the separation; however they need to know that you think the marriage is over.
The court does not consider whose fault it was that the marriage broke down.
When you make an application for divorce it is granted 30 days after the court date.
