A Pro Se Divorce packet has been assembled for your assistance.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
This information packet DOES NOT cover; child support, custody, distribution of property, or spousal support. Recognizing the legal system can be very complicated and confusing, this packet is designed to assist an individual who is not represented by an attorney (“Pro Se”) by providing information and sample forms to be used to obtain an absolute divorce.
If you obtain an Absolute Divorce without first properly filing for, or obtaining any legal rights you may have for spousal support, (lawsuits known as post separation support and alimony), or for the division of marital property, including martial debt, (a lawsuit known as equitable distribution), YOU WILL LOSE THESE RIGHTS. Therefore, it is VERY IMPORTANT that if you have any questions about whether you are entitled to property (or division of martial debt) from the marriage and or spousal support, YOU MUST TALK TO AN ATTORNEY, or your legal rights may be LOST FOREVER.
NO ONE EXCEPT AN ATTORNEY CAN ADVISE YOU ABOUT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
