Job Openings

File for Divorce
Clerk of District Court
The Clerk of District Court's office, located in the Law and Justice Center, is restricted from providing legal advice because we are not practicing attorneys.  

However, in a few instances, we do offer templates that you may use to file a divorce proceeding as pro se (without an attorney).  

The following packets are available at the Clerk of District Court's office for $10 or they may be downloaded at no cost from the State Law Library or the State Bar Association:
        -- Uncontested Dissolution of Marriage without children and no real property
        -- Summary Dissolution of Marriage without children
        -- Summary Dissolution of Marriage with children

The cost is $245 to open a divorce proceeding ($200 filling fee plus a judgment entry fee of $45) payable in cash, check or money order payable to the Clerk of Court.
If you are unable to pay the fees, you can file an Affidavit of Inability to Pay, which is also available in our office. It must be approved by a District Court Judge before you will be allowed to file for dissolution.

Help in understanding procedures is available at the Self Help Law Center located in the Law and Justice Center (gallatincountyselfhelp@gmail.com).
