Companies such as the Divorce Source and Rocket Lawyer offer free divorce forms available for download. Customers may choose the applicable state and a specific divorce packet, either for a case involving or not involving children, to download and print, states the Divorce Source.
Typical forms available from Rocket Lawyer include a quit-claim deed, divorce worksheet, affidavit of consent, divorce settlement agreement and child care authorization.
Divorce forms are available both for couples seeking an uncontested divorce that doesn't involve much court time except for the approval of the final paperwork, or for people planning to represent themselves in family court, states the Divorce Source. These packets most frequently are used by couples going into an uncontested proceeding in which neither party uses the legal process to exact better terms from the other.
Going through an attorney can add hundreds or thousands of dollars to the cost of a divorce, states the Divorce Source. The packets available online also contain information about the process of divorce from start to finish as well as an outline of the rights of both parties. Divorcing couples are free to show their paperwork to an attorney before filing, but the packets come with a complete set of instructions on the filing process.
