I am looking to finalize my divorce, after being separated for 1 year.
I was looking to obtain the divorce papers and complete on my own. There are no spousal support, property or debt issues to settle.
If I complete the paperwork, do I need my ex to sign them also?
Do I then go to the courthouse to submit my paperwork?
Will I then pay to have my ex served with a court date and/or a 30 day period to review the paperwork?
What happens if he does not show up on the court date?
are there court fees associated with filing the paperwork myself?
I’m trying to get a grasp on how the divorce will proceed, and ensure that I have all my eggs in a basket before I take on this task.
I cannot afford the lawyer fees.
