How to file for divorce online

Deciding to divorce with your spouse is stressful and packed with nearly impossible questions. 

However, with the introduction of internet divorce services, there are choices available that allow couples to split peacefully and affordably while maintaining their post-divorce connection and money. Controlling your divorce from the comfort of your own home will save you time, cash, and energy. 


Before getting started with an online divorce, there are a few fundamental topics and concepts to comprehend. 

What Exactly Is an Online Divorce? 

Online divorce is one in which you use an internet service to guide you through the phases of your divorce, such as writing divorce documents, negotiating a divorce settlement agreement, and filing paperwork with the court. These services eliminate the uncertainty from your divorce: The service will fill out the documentation you need to file and inform you where to file is based on your responses to an online interview or questionnaire. Some online divorce businesses will even file the paperwork for you for a fee. 

Is It Legal to Get an Online Divorce? 

An uncontested online divorce is exactly as legal as any other uncontested divorce, and it’s similar to filing your taxes online. The answers to the questions you and your spouse provide in our online divorce service are used to prepare the legal forms necessary by your county. 

The service will help you file your divorce paperwork with the court and create your stipulated judgment and settlement agreement. Your divorce will be final when the district court releases the final divorce decree. 

Who Can Get a Divorce Online? 

Online divorce can be handy, but it can also cause issues if your situation is not straightforward. No one will answer your questions or walk you through the legal process, and an attorney will not represent you to protect your rights or look out for your best interests. You’ll just have the internet to rely on for broad guidance and dubious authority. If you suspect problems, you should not file for divorce online. 

-Long-term relationship 

-An unsatisfactory connection with your spouse 

-Divorce that is contested or hostile 

-Divorce in multiple states

If your spouse has retained legal counsel, you will likely be unable to divorce online. On the other hand, if you and your spouse were married for a short period, have simple assets and obligations, no children, and are prepared to collaborate, you may be able to fill out and file divorce papers online without issue. An uncontested divorce case may be straightforward enough to handle online. If you are unsure which path to take, get the advice of a divorce lawyer before proceeding.
