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).
-- 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.
