If you have been separated from your partner for 12 months, you are eligible to apply for a divorce, as is your partner.
The divorce application can be prepared jointly or as a sole application by either party.
The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia publishes a helpful Divorce Kit online. Many people choose to conduct their own divorce by following the guidelines set out in the Divorce Kit.
Other people choose to have a lawyer handle their divorce, as it is an efficient way to complete filing and service of all requisite documents. Our solicitors will advise you on all aspects of divorce should you choose to retain us for the matter.
