Step 1: Initial Filing

Divorce is never easy, but you and your spouse have both agreed to this divorce and you've reached an agreement on how to divide your property, accounts, debts, and/or child custody. For those without children and limited income, there are forms for “Simplified Dissolution of Marriage”.
