Additional Services Available

Sometimes your divorce application is a little more complicated. Perhaps for part of the minimum 12-month separation period required for divorce you and former partner lived under the same roof, perhaps your marriage certificate is not in English, perhaps you don’t know where your former spouse is or they are avoiding service or perhaps you have children under 18 years old and it is not a joint application.

If you are not sure whether you require additional services, call me (07 4439 9339) and I can let you know what you require and the cost.
