How We Charge
At Family Law Resolutions, we’re open and upfront about how we charge you during your family law matter.
Our family law fee structure is what is known as “fixed pricing”, which we can offer in most cases. In other cases, we can offer time costing at our hourly rate.
Basically, this means you know how we will charge before you instruct us to act for you.
We provide family law fixed pricing for three types of matters:
- Property Settlement
- Parenting Arrangements
Divorce Applications – Fixed Fees
Joint application for divorce: $649.00
Sole application for divorce: $749.00
Property Settlement Consent Orders – Fixed Fees

Advance Consent Orders: from $2,949*
Parenting Arrangements – Fixed Fees
Essential Parenting Plans: $1,149*
Advanced Parenting Plans: $1,549*
Essential Parenting Consent Orders: $2,349*
Advanced Parenting Consent Orders: from $2,949*
First free interview
Making the decision to contact a family lawyer can be daunting. It can be difficult to focus on precisely what you need to do.
To help remove the financial risk of an initial consultation with a lawyer, we provide a “first free interview”.
Will there be other costs in my matter?
In most cases there will be additional ‘third party’ costs which are not included our fixed fees. A third-party cost means any government or court fees that may apply or any services you may require from other professionals, such as a property valuer or conveyancer. We will let you know about possible additional costs at the start of your matter and keep you informed if any other costs may arise.
If you require additional services from outside the original scope of work, we will always provide a quote first for your approval before commencing work. If you wish to discuss costs with us, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team: 1800 357 000
Court filing fees
To lodge an application for divorce, the Court will charge a filing fee of $1,060 or a reduced fee of $350 for eligible concession card holders or those that meet the Court’s financial hardship criteria.
To lodge an application for consent orders, the Court will charge a filing fee of $195. The Applicant ordinarily meets the cost of this expense but will be exempt from payment if they hold an eligible concession card.
