Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.

Good Morning.

If it is simply to end the marriage you can do it yourself. If it is for a property settlement or for children then it is best you have a solicitor as it is not a simple matter.

You do not need to have a lawyer for a joint divorce application.

It only ends the marriage.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
