Divorce

If your marriage has broken down and you have been separated for at least 12 months, you can apply for divorce to the Federal Circuit Court, or to the Family Court. The fees charged by the Federal Circuit Court are lower than the Family Court, so the Federal Circuit Court is the better choice.  Divorces can have unexpected consequences including:

  • an application for property settlement must be made within 12 months of the divorce being finalised, unless the court orders otherwise;
  • a divorce automatically cuts your divorced spouse out of your will.

The specialist family law solicitors at Somerville Legal can handle all aspects of your divorce, including preparing the application, filing it with the court and serving it. You may not even have to attend court.

We can have your divorce through the court system within just a few weeks.
