Amelia Trotman

Armstrong Legal's Brisbane based family law team are experienced divorce lawyers who can provide you with sound advice about the divorce process in Queensland, as well as advice surrounding child custody, property division and maintenance.

In Queensland (and Australia generally), to apply for a divorce you must be able to show that there is:

  • A valid marriage - evidenced by a marriage certificate. If your marriage cerificate is in a language other than English, you will require a translation which can be obtained from an accredited translator. Our Queensland divorce lawyers can assist you in obtaining a copy of your marriage certificate or a translation where necessary, and in rare cases where a marriage certificate is not available, we can assist you in providing the necessary evidence to the Court.
  • Jurisdiction - to obtain a divorce in Australia, at least one of the parties to the marriage must:
    • Regard Australia as home;
    • Intend to live in Australia indefinitely;
    • Be an Australian citizen; or
    • Ordinarily live in Australia and have lived in Australia for the 12 months prior to the making of the application for divorce.

A divorce will be granted where the Court is satisfied that the marriage has irretrievably broken down and that there are satisfactory arrangements in place for any children under the age of 18 years.
