Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
In my experience it is better to spend a few hundred dollars and get it done right. This should be a very simple divorce and should qualify for an attorney's lowest rate. If you seek a younger attorney you will get an even lower rate. Online forms are ok for certain things, but if you mess up a divorce it can have lasting implications. You want to make sure this is done correctly in order to insure your own marriage is valid.
If you absolutely must handle the matter yourself then go to your local court clerk and get copies of several example divorces to review. It will ultimately help you understand what is needed but you will still take a risk of not getting it done right.
