COURTS - DIVORCE INFORMATION
In order to end a marriage, a person must obtain a final judgment from a circuit court dissolving the marriage. In that judgment, all property, support and child-related issues ordinarily will be determined. To obtain that judgment a person must file a petition to start a lawsuit, legally serve (notice) his or her spouse, provide and obtain financial information to and from his or her spouse, if children are involved, take a class, and either have an agreement prepared and brought to the court at an appropriately noticed final hearing or have a trial before a judicial officer at which evidence will be taken to allow the judicial officer to make decisions. A person is not required to have a lawyer to obtain a divorce. However, because this is a legal process with rules and procedures to be followed, it is advisable to obtain legal counsel.
The Clerk's Office can provide you with an information packet to begin your divorce.
The packet costs: $20 with children | $15 without children | $15 without property
Please see Service Charges and Fees for associated costs
A $40.00 service fee is also paid to the Sheriff's Department. For more information on getting started, contact the Clerk's Civil Department at (904) 548-4606.
