I’m trying to preform my own uncontested divorce in Brunswick County. I have no real way of paying a lawyer to do it. My ex and I have been living apart since 2003, any debts that where gathered during the marriage have since been paid off, no children where born of the marriage and there was no real property. My ex and I are on speaking terms and can get through a uncontested divorce.
my question seems to be, what do i do first?
do i file a divorce complaint and motion for summary judgment? or just a complaint? (whats the difference?)
do i set a court date first THEN i can fill in the date for the divorce judgement paper?
what i have is a pile of papers (that are out of order) some forms, and spotty instructions that look like they were copied out of a “do it yourself divorce” book.
so i guess my real question is, what do i do first? my ex will cooperate, we have nothing to split up…im just lost in a sea of legal confusion with only bits and pieces of information at my disposal. I guess what im looking for is a list of forms that need to be filed and when to have them filed.
any help would be - helpful!
