The We The People Divorce with Minor Children Package can be used to obtain a divorce when you and your spouse have children together or the wife is pregnant. This Package is appropriate whether or not you have property or debts that you and your spouse need to divide.
The We The People Divorce without Minor Children Package can be used to obtain a divorce when you and your spouse have no children together and the wife is not pregnant. This Package is appropriate whether or not you have property or debts that you and your spouse need to divide.
The We The People Divorce Response Package can be used to respond if you have been served with a Petition for Divorce. Once you have been served with a Petition, you have 30 days to let the Court know if you want to be a full participant in the divorce process. You may want to do this even if you agree with everything the Petition says.
The We The People Divorce or Legal Separation Amendment can be used if changes are needed on divorce forms that have already been served on the other party or have already been filed in court.
Essentially any document filed with the court prior to the entry of Judgment can be amended. The amendment could be due to a clerical or typographical error, or simply a change in the terms of an agreement. If a document or form is changed, then usually it has to be re-served or re-filed just as the original documents was served or filed.
The Court will only allow you to amend your Petition once without getting permission from the Judge in advance. Obtaining the permission for a second amendment is not something that We The People will be able to assist you with.
The We The People Marital Settlement Agreement can be used for either a divorce or legal separation when you and your spouse want to finalize the division of property and debts and/or spell out the terms of any child custody, visitation, or support agreements.
* The fees above do not include filing, recording, or courier service fees.
Divorce is a process that at its conclusion ends the marriage between a couple, and all direct legal relationships between them, with the exception of exclusions written in the divorce decree or judgment. A written agreement can usually address pertinent matters to the divorce such as spousal support, parenting arrangements, child support, division of property, and payment of debts. When there is an agreement between the couple on these matters, the divorce is considered "uncontested."
To obtain a divorce, one or both parties will file all required paperwork with the appropriate court, beginning with a petition (or complaint) for divorce. A divorce is granted by a judge after the necessary paperwork has been submitted, all required waiting periods have lapsed and all appearances before the judge are completed. In some cases it may not be necessary to be physically present in the court to get a divorce. However, this is up to the court and depends on the issues being considered.
