Divorce Application

Thank you for choosing The Online Family Lawyer to assist you with your Divorce Application. The fees for your online Divorce Application are outlined below. There are fees such as Family Law Court filing fees which you will also have to pay. At the time of writing, the Family Law Court of Australia filing fee is $577.00 (or $60.00 for unemployed/financial hardship). 

Our fees do not include attendance at Court. Court attendance is not always necessary and we will provide you with that information when preparing your documents. If your documents are all in order then the Court attendance (if required) will generally be very straightforward. Please note that our fees for a sole application include us engaging a process server to attempt service of the documents. Their fees will be additional and we can give you an indication of the cost of that disbursement when we know where your spouse is living.

The Online Family Lawyer’s fees for preparation of documents are as follows:
  • Joint application for Divorce $500.00 + GST
  • Sole application for Divorce $700.00 + GST
  • Applications that require further documentation to establish separation under one roof or where you do not know the whereabouts of your spouse: $800.00 + GST
  • A percentage of your fees will be donated to one of our partner charities.
The fee includes:
  • Liaising with you in relation to the Divorce Application
  • Completing and providing you with an Application for Divorce
  • If your Application is a sole Application then we will engage a process server to attempt service on your spouse.
  • Completing and providing you with an Affidavit of Service
  • Completing and providing you with an Acknowledgment of Service
  • Completing any further affidavit that may be required in relation to separation under one roof or the location of the other party if not known
  • Providing you with a detailed letter outlining the steps involved to obtain the Divorce order


We need you to complete some questions to enable us to prepare the necessary paperwork. Once you have submitted the information we will be in contact by email. We can also talk on IM-Chat via our Facebook site or on Skype. Please let us know if you prefer contact by telephone as that can certainly be arranged.
