DO I NEED A LAWYER TO APPLY FOR A DIVORCE?
If you wish to apply for a divorce without the assistance of a lawyer, ‘divorce kits’ are available from the Family Law Courts. If you would prefer to have a lawyer prepare and lodge the application on your behalf we are happy to assist. Sometimes people prefer to use a lawyer for divorce applications, particularly if there are potential difficulties.
We recommend that you obtain legal advice prior to applying for a divorce so that you are aware of how a divorce order may impact on your entitlements with respect to property division, spousal maintenance and/or your Will.
