Our divorce lawyers in Melbourne understand divorce can be stressful and emotional and act accordingly during these difficult times. The team at Parke will ensure your application is prepared thoroughly and accurately and in a timely manner to obtain the divorce as quickly as possible.


In order to apply for a divorce throughout Australia you must satisfy the court that you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for at least 12 months and that there is no reasonable likelihood of you resuming married life.  It is possible to live together at the same residence and still be separated. Applications for divorce are dealt with by the Federal Circuit Court of Australia.

What type of lawyers handle divorce?

Family lawyers handle divorce, prenuptial agreements, custody battles, and other issues relating to marriage and children. If the couple has children aged under 18, a divorce will only be granted by the court if suitable arrangements have been made for the welfare of those children. The family lawyers at Parke Lawyers can assist with your application for divorce – whether a joint application with your spouse or a sole application by you.
