Do it yourself divorce with pro se services.
Handling your own divorce is known as pro se divorce. Along the way, you may have legal questions that we can answer. These may include proper procedures, which forms to complete, fair marital property division or child support. At The Seattle Family Law Group, we can help you do it yourself!
Preparing a divorce.
Because divorces are based on irreconcilable differences, neither party has to show fault. The only challenge is to have your spouse agree to the terms of divorce. The petition and summons must be served on your spouse by someone other than you. Proof of service must be filed at the courthouse. If you’re confused, contact The Seattle Family Law Group.
Understanding restraining orders.
A restraining order can be filed if your spouse is abusing you mentally, physically or emotionally. The papers must be filed and served along with the divorce papers. A violation of the order could result in arrest.
Contents of the divorce petition.
Divorce papers cover the key points, including a workable child care plan. If you and your spouse can’t agree, the court will decide. The same can be said for division of property, child support and spousal support or alimony. Questions can be directed to the professionals at The Seattle Family Law Group.
