Family Problem

Is a lawyer required for divorce?

Not necessarily. Divorcing couples can go directly to the Family Court to obtain and submit the application forms and apply for divorce on their own. Prior to or when making the divorce application, legal advice may be obtained. An applicant may require the services of a lawyer if:

a.      the other side does not agree to the divorce;

b.      the parties cannot agree on arrangements relating to their children or finances.
