divorce formsIn these tuff economic times many people are looking for ways to save money on their divorce. Couples have many choices in St. Louis to reduce the costs of getting divorced. For a simple divorce they can choose to represent themselves (also called acting Pro Se) using standard divorce forms from the Missouri Supreme Court. These do-it-yourself divorce forms are accepted in all counties in Missouri.

If you choose to do it yourself, it does not mean you have to go it alone in your divorce.

These plans allow you to receive relevant legal advice without sacrificing the peace of mind you need about the costs of your divorce.

Do-it-Yourself St. Louis Divorce: Contested vs. Uncontested

A divorce is technically known as a ‚ÄĚdissolution of marriage.” Divorces come in two basic forms: contested and uncontested. A do-it-yourself divorce is one form of uncontested divorce in which the couple is in full agreement on all issues and completes all the required documents for their divorce filing, required notices, and filing fees themselves.

The Missouri Supreme Court recently passed laws that enable married couples to handle their own divorce under certain circumstances. This is sometimes referred to as acting Pro Se. In order to file a do-it-yourself/self-represented divorce couples must comply with the Missouri Supreme Court and local jurisdiction rules for completing the divorce. The same legal requirements must be met as when you hire an attorney to assist you. We recommended that you always get the assistance of a licensed Missouri family law attorney when filing your divorce. There are many pitfalls to be avoided when completing your divorce. Working with Nate Hartung, an experienced Missouri family law attorney, will allow you to proceed with your do-it-yourself/self-represented Missouri divorce at a low cost while avoiding the potential pitfalls.
