Legal advice: divorce costs

The divorce procedure is usually very straightforward, and in most cases the costs are limited. The cost of a divorce application can include:

  • Our legal fees for preparing the application – in some cases, we can offer fixed fees.
  • The Court’s filing fee – these fees are approximately $865 (reduced fees are approximately $290 for those who qualify). Check the current fees on the Family Court of Australia site.
  • Service fees – you may need to use a “process server” to personally serve the application on your former spouse (for example, if you have difficulty locating them, or if they are deliberately trying to avoid being served with the documents).
  • Your lawyer’s costs to attend the Divorce Hearing – note that you can choose to attend the Divorce Hearing with or without a lawyer.

There may be additional costs if your divorce is particularly complex.

Take advantage of our obligation-free consultation to find out what your options are, and the likely costs involved.
