When you sign a court document, you may be helping or hurting your case. Before you sign any court document or get involved with a court case, it is important that you get advice from a lawyer. If you cannot afford a lawyer, consider finding a legal aid provider to help you with your case. Going to court without a lawyer is risky, and if you choose to be unrepresented, you must be prepared. Watch our informative video about what the court will expect of you and what you can expect when going to court without a lawyer.
You should use this form packet if you want to divorce your spouse AND:
If either you or your spouse is in the military, or if you or your spouse is pregnant, DO NOT use this form packet. There are special issues in your case that these forms do not address, and you need to seek legal advice from a lawyer.
If you are seeking a protection order, you can petition for one, in a separate case, from the privacy of a domestic violence shelter. Learn more about getting a protection order.
When you attend the Provisional Hearing, you must bring with you a completed Child Support Obligation Worksheet and related forms (such as the Parenting Time Credit Worksheet and Health Insurance Premium Worksheet). Individual forms like those above—which can be filled in and printed or printed blank—are available, and to complete them, you must follow the instructions in the Indiana Child Support Guidelines.
Or you can use the Child Support Calculator, which will walk you through a series of questions and produce completed forms for you.
If you cannot afford it, you may ask the court to waive the divorce filing fee. To do so, complete the Motion for Fee Waiver in a Divorce form packet.
