How much does a divorce cost?

The costs involved in applying for divorce usually consist of the following:

  • Filling Fee: Payable to the Federal Circuit Court of Australia. Filing fees are listed on the Court’s website.
  • Service Fees: You may also need to pay for a process server to serve the application on your spouse. Rates for these services vary between providers.
  • Legal Fees: 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.
