Hey all!
I was wondering if anyone has ever done a "do-it-yourself" divorce. I am trying to right now and have been having some issues. My mother has served him the papers and we were wondering what the next step is. If anyone has any advice or has done this anything would help right now.
Thank you very much =)

  • In most states you cannot do a do it yourself divorce if there are children involved or if you own property (house/land). I did the divorce for my oldest dd. It was quick and easy.

  • Not sure. My mother is trying to do one on her own too, since her ex won't acknowledge or sign the papers. I'm interested to see more answers.

  • I don't know, she is in the process and I am not too involved. All I know is she said he would not sign papers and that she would have to do everything from her side...
