How much does a divorce cost?

There are “do it yourself” divorce kits available from the Family Court website.  If you are able to complete this yourself the only cost is the Family Court filling fee in lodging the application, serving the application on the other party and your time involved in preparing and lodging these legal documents.

Alternatively you may seek to retain a lawyer to prepare the documentation, arrange for the service of the application on the other party and appear before the court to seek the orders on the “return date”.

There can be aspects of the divorce application which involve greater complexity. If there is separation under the same roof, there are children under 18 or if the marriage is less than two years long, the Family Court has additional criteria before it will be persuaded to grant the divorce order.
