How To Use Online Do It Yourself Divorce Forms:

Using Online Divorce Papers To Get Divorced.

A do-it-yourself uncontested divorce is defined as a divorce where both spouses agree that the marriage is over and irreversible damaged. Each spouse should be in agreement on all matters of the marriage and divorce such as child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, division of property and assets as well as any other issue that will need to be divided and decided by the two spouses involved in the divorce case.

Typically a do-it-yourself divorce involves you creating your own divorce papers to file with the court. Serving your spouse with the appropriate documents related to your divorce case. Going to court and signing off on your divorce settlement agreement which outlines the terms and conditions of your divorce that you and your spouse have agreed upon. Signing off on any child custody, child support, child visitation and any other items that would be related to the divorce such as property, assets and debt. The court would then grant you a final decree of divorce and your divorce case will be closed and you and your spouse will no longer be married.

Keep in mind that you must meet a few requirements depending on your state.

Most states have a waiting period for divorce. This means that after you file your petition for divorce you will have to wait a certain number of days before the court will hear your divorce case or accept your paperwork. This is considered to be a cooling off period just in case you and your spouse decide you no longer want to get divorced. Typically the waiting period is around 60 days but could be as long as a year depending on your state. In a do-it-yourself uncontested divorce, the parties involved in the divorce may waive this waiting period by completing a waiver form. You will also need to meet the residency requirements for your state in order to file for divorce. Most states require you to be a resident of the state for at least 60 days before you can file for divorce. The actual length of the residency requirement is dependent upon your state. All of this information is explained in the instructions included in our free online printable divorce forms packet.
