Welcome To Washington Divorce Navigator
Step 1: Petition
Start or complete your first divorce forms, the Petition. The Petitioner files the first forms in the divorce, and the Respondent answers a Petition after its been served.
In this step, you will be giving basic details about yourself, family and general requests - the final terms of your divorce will be decided in Step 3.
Step 2: Financial Declaration
This step does not divide anything, but gives you and your spouse each others' financial information to help determine how assets should be divided.
In this section, you will provide information about your assets and debts, income and expenses.
If You Have Kids: Parenting Plan
Create your parenting plan with your spouse, determining who has physical custody with the children during the school year, holidays, and vacations.
Step 3: Agreement & Judgment
This is the final step in your divorce, where you and your spouse will decide how to divide your assets and child custody fairly.
If you need help with this step, we have mediators, attorneys or financial planners available at a flat hourly rate.
