Federal Magistrates Court: notice as to divorce forms

In February 2007 the Federal Magistrates Court released a new Application for Divorce, and other divorce forms. These forms are available on the Family Law Court’s website at: familylawcourts.gov.au.

An online divorce application form is also available at www.divorce.gov.au .

Since the introduction of the new divorce forms, feedback has been positive. However, there are still some applications which are filed using the previously prescribed form(s).

This notice is to advise practitioners and litigants that registry staff have been requested not to accept divorce forms which are no longer approved for use in the court after 31 December 2008.
