Free Business Forms provides links to divorce forms maintained by each state's judicial website. Free state divorce forms are typically intended for uncontested divorces, and the parties may have to file additional documents if children or substantial financial issues are involved, the site states.
States offer instructions on completing and filing divorce forms, and some allow online completion, notes Free Business Forms. Some state courts provide assistance in the form of self-help centers or lawyers who work pro bono. Most states require a minimum residency of six months, and divorce papers must be filed with the county court where the filing party has established residency. After divorce forms are filed, most states require a waiting period of up to one year before finalizing a divorce.
