NO FAULT DIVORCE LEGAL FORMS SOFTWARE FOR UNCONTESTED DIVORCE & DISSOLUTION WITHOUT CHILDREN
Some divorce proceedings are easier to deal with than others. If there are no children involved in your marriage and if you and your spouse are agreeable to the split of assets and other financial issues, then you can file for a "No Fault Divorce" without the costly expense of hiring a divorce attorney.
Standard Legal's No Fault Divorce software contains all of the background information, detailed instructions and fill-in-the-blank legal forms necessary to prepare and file an uncontested divorce -- commonly known as a "No Fault Divorce", "Uncontested Divorce" or a "Dissolution."
With an uncontested No Fault Divorce, neither person in the marriage is deemed to be at fault and both spouses agree in writing to the split of marital property, assets, home, division of debts, etc. Generally, the grounds for a No Fault Divorce are "irreconcilable differences" between the two parties (some states have different terms for these grounds, but the theory is the same).
In the forms filed with the court (either a "Complaint for Divorce" or a "Petition for Dissolution", depending on the state), the parties ask the court to legally terminate the marriage. Some states' divorce laws require one party to be named as a plaintiff (the one filing for the divorce) and the other party a defendant (the party defending the action), while some states consider the parties to be "co-petitioners" or "petitioner" and "respondent".
In any case, each state recognizes the right of married couples to obtain a no-fault divorce as a way to end the marriage without considerable burden.
There are some specific requirements for using the forms contained in this No Fault Divorce software:
- First, both the husband and wife must agree on ALL of the issues surrounding property division and spousal support (if applicable);
- Second, the husband and wife must live separate and apart for a period of time as required by state law (see STATE DIVORCE REQUIREMENTS CHART for details);
- Third, the signature of each spouse is REQUIRED on all of the documents to be filed with the court, showing that each spouse consents to the divorce and its terms;
- Fourth (and somewhat obviously), the whereabouts of each spouse must be known, as both persons must consent to the terms of the divorce and must be willing to sign the documents. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ONE PERSON TO FILE A NO-FAULT DIVORCE ON BEHALF OF BOTH PARTIES, since full agreement and cooperation of both persons is required!
DO NOT WASTER YOUR TIME AND MONEY BY BUYING OR USING THIS DO-IT-Y0URSELF LEGAL FORMS SOFTWARE IF ALL OF THESE CONDITIONS CANNOT BE MET!
If total agreement cannot be reached by both persons involved on ALL of the issues related to ending the marriage, then a "no fault" divorce cannot be completed and legal representation should be sought.
But if both parties are completely agreeable and can work together to complete and file the forms with the court, then the do-it-yourself divorce software offered by Standard Legal makes the process as simple, clear and understandable as possible -- and much more affordable than both parties hiring their own attorneys and spending weeks in court.
The forms provided in this Do It Yourself Divorce Software are the most up-to-date, legally accurate and easiest-to-use in the industry. Many competitors provide forms that are poorly formatted, out of date or simply filled with inaccurate instructions.
