Do It Yourself Divorce

No one gets married planning on getting divorced. The cold hard ugly truth is that 50% of all marriages end in divorce.

One of the most grueling parts of getting a divorce is finding an attorney that will listen to you and then seeing their fees.

If you and your spouse can both agree on a divorce and wanting to do it without involving attorneys, you can file for divorce yourself in and only pay filing fees.

While not having to pay an attorney is a good thing, there are still things that must be considered when looking at trying to file yourself. Remember, no one advocating for you in your divorce, you have to do it yourself and you and your spouse must agree.

This agreement needs to include all issues pertaining to the divorce, sucxh as division of assets, what will be sold, what will be kept, who is responsible for what and so on.

Filing yourself means that you also have to trust your soon to be ex-spouse to disclose everything as far as assets and income go. Likewise you have to be willing to do the same.

The assets that you and your spouse share need to be relatively simple so that division is easy. If there are children involved in the marriage, you and your spouse must make sure that the children are adequately taken care of as far as custody, visitation and child support.

Finally, both you and your spouse must agree that the settlement is “fair and reasonable.”

If you can do those things then you may want to consider filing the divorce yourself. There are certain forms that you will need and each state has its own requirements as to how you are to go about filing and deadlines that need to be met.

The forms that you will need can be purchased online in a divorce packet and in some cases, the county court in may even provide free online forms.
