There are three main steps to divorce. Each step consists of 1) preparing the relevant forms; 2) filing them with the court; and 3) serving (i.e. delivering) them on your spouse. To prepare the forms, you’ll respond our simple, online questionnaire. Once completed, your forms will be instantly populated. If you are a DIY member, the “Div Nav” guides you through filing and serving each form with clear instructions. If you want us to file and serve the forms for you, upgrade to DIY Pro.
Additionally, if you would like attorney help for the more complicated issues or to plan your divorce strategy, we offer access to attorneys at on-demand, transparent, flat-fees.

– Additional service fees may apply.
– If the international spouse’s country prevents us from providing complete service, you will only be charged for the work performed then refunded.
