NO FAULT DIVORCE LEGAL FORMS SOFTWARE FOR UNCONTESTED DIVORCE & DISSOLUTION WITHOUT CHILDREN
Some divorce proceedings are easier to complete 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 a lawyer.
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
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
- 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!

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.

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
