Divorce Sucks. But we make it easier and cheaper.

Every divorce starts with the Petition. If you file first, you’re the Petitioner and your spouse is the Respondent (and vice versa).

There is no legal advantage to being the Petitioner vs. the Respondent. After someone files the petition, the other spouse has 30 days to respond.

You're starting the process of the Petitioner below, which means you (the married person) would like to start the legal proceedings. It’s the stage where the expression “file for divorce” is used. If you are the Respondent; meaning your spousse has already filed, Click HERE.

To start your divorce, we are going to help you prepare the following three documents:

Which of the following are true? (check all that apply, but at least one must apply.)
Is your spouse/domestic partner represented by an attorney?
What is your relationship with the other party? (check all that apply)
