    different circumstances and all that :unsure:

    If both parties are of the same mind and you can agree about who gets what, you can DIY it and cut out those nasty expensive lawyers. I downloaded the forms, filled them in, got the now-ex to sign them and and an agreement about who gets what, in front of a JP, and it only cost the fee. Good luck.

    you can download the forms fill em out or lodge online. You dont need your ex to sign them. You need to have been separated a year. If there is a child there has to be a care plan which covers health education visits etc, but its all in the info pack. It costs $480 ish off the top of my head. If only you signs the form then you have to appear in court when it comes to the day, but if your husband signs aswell then you don't need to. It is pretty straight forward. www.divorcepedia.com.au has all the info.
