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" ground for divorce in West Virginia is:

2. Irreconcilable differences between the two parties.

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.
