Does it only refer to the marriage in the UK?
Was it a marriage in QLD or just a commitment? They are very different here.
The second is not a marriage
Are either of you in Australia?
In that case you have to get a divorce as well if it is not mentioned in the UK decree
If they live in australia you can apply online and have them served.
The court will grant it and you do not have to appear.
