  • Go to the library and print off the pages you need yourself. My friend did that for her divorce.

  • If you have children by that husband or own property with him you cannot do your own divorce. Go to legal aid.

  • or you can go to your courthouse & go to the family planning office or whatever they call it in your court & they will give you all the papers you need. It cost me $80 to file them though, but that is STILL a lot cheaper than getting a lawyer. It also helps if you both agree on everything. If you dis-agree on certain important issues, then that makes the process much harder.

  • Actually Admckenzie, that is exactly what i did when i got divorced. We had not lawyers or a legal aid & filled out our own paper work. We both went in together to do the child support worksheet. W/ no legal aid, & no lawyers, i got divorced & we had a child. So it is very possible. I know, because that is EXACTLY what i did. BUT, like i said, you have to agree to everything. Luckily, my ex & i agrees about everything & we worked out together the things we did not agree on. Bot most people divorcing are not that friendly we my ex & i were.

  • You can buy divorce packets. They are usually sold at book stores. Call around.
