A Divorce Order officially ends a marriage that has irretrievably broken down.

Let us help you put the big issues to rest.

This may be one of the most stressful and challenging times in your life. We’re here for you. It’s a comfort to know you’re backed by Perth’s most effective and respected divorce lawyers.

An Application for Divorce can be made by you, or by your spouse, or by the two of you jointly.

To obtain a divorce order, the Court must be satisfied that:

  • You and your spouse have been separated for at least 12 months before the Application for Divorce is filed; and
  • Where there are children of the marriage under the age of 18 years, the arrangements in place for the children are adequate in the circumstances.

We’ll work with you to find ways of doing the necessary work as cost-effectively as possible without cutting corners, avoiding litigation in the family court – unless it’s necessary.
