Divorce Lawyers in Perth
A divorce is the formal dissolution of your marriage and does not include the division of marital assets or arrangements for the care of the children. Burra-Robinson Family Lawyers will guide you through the application process and assist with the drafting, filing and service of legal documentation for divorce in the Perth Family Law Court.
You can make your own divorce application or hire a divorce lawyer to help you. If you are applying for divorce as a sole applicant, you will need to give a copy of it to your ex-spouse.
You will need to fill out and file an Affidavit for Service with the court. The Affidavit, which is a sworn testimony that demonstrates that the application was received and served by the other party, will be filed with the court. You will not be required to attend the divorce hearing if you don’t have any children (under 18).
There may be confusion about whether you should attend your divorce hearing. Consult one of our specialist divorce lawyers for assistance.

There is also the possibility of spousal support. An experienced family lawyer at Burra-Robinson Family Lawyers can help you to predict how your case will go in court.
