Frequently Asked Questions

This really depends on if you are referring to getting an actual Divorce Order, or finalising aspects related to relationship breakdown such as parenting arrangements and property settlement.Getting a divorce itself is generally fairly straightforward, and requires forms to be submitted to the FCFCOA (Federal Circuit & Family Court of Australia). 


A standard divorce application has a fee of $1060 in Australia, or a reduced (concession or financial hardship) fee of $350. Other fees related to Family Law applications can be found here: https://www.fcfcoa.gov.au/fl/fees/fl-fees 


If you have a complex divorce matter, such as being married in another country or being unable to access original marriage certificates, further fees may apply, and you may need to  provide additional information. Organising parenting arrangements and property settlements can be much more costly, depending on your personal circumstances and if you and your ex-partner are able to reach agreement without multiple rounds of mediation or going through the court process. 

A divorce and separation lawyer can help you navigate multiple legal aspects of relationship breakdown. This may be organising a Divorce application on your behalf, or assisting with negotiations and orders associated with parenting and property.

Many people in this situation choose to avoid court by utilising mediation or dispute resolution, which we can help with. If your matter requires court representation, we are also able to guide you during this process and represent you in court.

To choose a divorce lawyer in Australia, start by researching experienced family law firms in your area and seek recommendations from trusted sources, like friends or professionals.

Look for lawyers who specialise in the areas of family law that you need assistance in, who have a good reputation. You can schedule initial consultations with a few lawyers to assess their expertise, communication style, and fees. Discuss your case’s specifics and ensure you feel comfortable with your chosen lawyer. Finally, consider the fee and payment structure before making a decision.

In Australia, the cost of a divorce is generally paid for by the individuals seeking it, whether a joint or single application. The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia charges a filing fee for divorce applications, as we mentioned above, which may be reduced in cases of financial hardship.

If both parties agree on the divorce, they often share the costs. If hired, legal fees for divorce lawyers are typically paid by each party individually. Legal aid may be available for those who meet the eligibility criteria, such as those experiencing family or domestic violence.
