In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" grounds for divorce in District of Columbia are:
1. Mutual voluntary separation without cohabitation for 6 months;
2. Living separate and apart without cohabitation for 1 year.
"Living separate and apart" may be accomplished under the same roof, if the spouses do not share bed or food.
All of your documents will be current according to District of Columbia statutes and will address over 100 issues. A few of these issues are; assets, property, current debts, future debts, insurances, retirement and pension accounts, spousal support/alimony, real estate, small businesses, tax filings, name changes, and professional fees. If you have children, our service will also address physical and legal custody arrangements, visitation schedules, child support, and health and medical coverage.
