You still need to get a divorce even if you have resolved all of your other issues through the separation agreement. You do not, however, need to pay an attorney to get a divorce. You can do it yourself. Click on the link below for instructions on a do-it-yourself divorce.

Thanks, the forms and directions are very helpful. Will the child support and property division stated in the seraration papers remain in effect if I do a do-it-yourself divorce?

Can signed by mitual agreement separation papers suffice as a divorce decree? What steps do I follow to obtain a divorce without paying additional funds to an attorney. The separation papers and property distribution has been agreed upon & signed in the presence of an attorney.
