Do I need legal advice for divorce or separation in Australia?

Divorce and separation are fairly straightforward processes in Australia. However, if you and your ex have concerns, disagreements about your finances or children, you should get legal advice to ensure what you receive is just and equitable to you under law.

The process of getting a divorce also requires that the right documents are filed. Sometimes this can be overwhelming so getting a qualified legal specialist to run their eyes over what you are submitting can give you peace of mind and ensure you are not wasting time on administrative faults.

Where can I get cheap family law advice online?

Modern Divorce is an easy to use service that provides cheap, efficient advice online at your convenience. Our advice section tailors advice to you at a rate that is much cheaper than your average traditional firm.

What is Modern Divorce and why is it so cheap?

Modern Divorce is a website that allows you to get advice, information and file for a divorce without having to engage with a law firm. It is cheap because we take the procedure and cost out of having to meet with a firm and engage in the process of manually engaging a firm. A lawyer will still proof your documents and ensure everything is satisfied. This helps us reduce our cost and make it more affordable for you.

Can I use this service if I am based in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Perth?

As the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) is a Commonwealth Law, the law on divorce, parenting and property settlement following a de facto relationship breakdown is the same across all jurisdictions in Australia, Modern Divorce is available for anyone in Australia to use. This means that you can use this service if you are in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart or Perth.

How does Modern Divorce work?
