How to File for Divorce Online

by eHow Relationships & Family Editor

When a couple gets married it is usually with every intent that they are going to be together forever. Sometimes, though, things just don't work out as intended and end up in a file for divorce. If you and your soon-to-be "ex" mutually agree on how to divide your assets then you may be able to file for an uncontested divorce online. Follow these steps to learn how.

Log on to an online divorce system. A couple of well known online divorce systems include the Divorce Writer and Legal Zoom sites.

Determine if you qualify to file for divorce online. The qualifications include not having children under 18, ability to locate the spouse, willingness for both parties to sign the papers and mutual agreement on the division of your property.

Complete an online interview. You and your spouse will need to complete an online questionnaire. The questions consist of the same things an attorney would ask you in their office, but from the comfort of your own home. There is an online support system if you have any questions.

Receive the completed forms that will be mailed to you. The instructions that you will need for submitting your paperwork to your court for completing your divorce will be included. In most cases you won't have to appear before the judge.

Pay for the services online. Most online divorce systems accept either Visa or MasterCard, or you can have the divorce fees deducted from your checking account. The prices vary by state and website.
