Interactive Form: Divorce
Interactive forms are available for free to low income individuals seeking a divorce in Kentucky. We currently have interactive forms for couples seeking a divorce without minor children. This program is designed for individuals who are not likely to run into problems with their spouse in terms of custody and property. If you anticipate a dispute about custody, visitation, child support, property, or liability for debts, or if you think that your spouse will be hiring an attorney, a self-help divorce may not be the best option for you. In that case, you may want to retain a private attorney. Kentucky Lawyer Referral (502-583-1801) can provide you with the name of a lawyer.
You are forfeiting legal representation by doing the self-help program. No one will handle problems with your spouse, his/her attorney, assets, custody, child support, or the court. You will need to go in front of the judge by yourself. You have to do all the work regarding your divorce. You will probably need to do multiple filings.
Divorce Complaint Packet (No Children)
The information you will need to complete the divorce complaint packet interview includes:
- Your and your spouse’s full legal name.
- Your and your spouse’s mailing address. If you do not have your spouse’s address you should try to obtain it by all reasonable means.
- Your and your spouse’s contact phone numbers (or message phones).
- Your and your spouse’s birth date.
- Your and your spouse’s employer name (if applicable).
- Date, city, state, county, and country of your marriage.
- Case numbers and copies of orders from any other court cases involving you or your spouse, including domestic violence.
- Information about your joint assets, including home or vehicles, bank accounts, and retirement accounts.
- Information about your debts, including debts on the home or vehicles, credit cards utilities, and tax arrearages.
If you don’t have all of the information above, you can still use the interactive forms to fill in the information you do have. If you choose to sign up for a user name and password for the interactive forms, you can save your answers and finish completing the interactive forms when you have the remaining needed information.
