This is one of two steps you will take to start the process of filing for divorce, if you don't have kids. The information you enter will be used to fill in the documents you will need to save and print when you're done, so you can file them at the clerk's office of your local court.
Don't exit until you have filled out all of the information since anything you enter can't be saved until the end. Also be sure to:
- Enter your information completely and correctly so the court can understand how to best divide your belongings and meet your needs.
- Set aside enough time. It will take about 30 minutes to complete this information.
- Use a computer, if possible, so that you can easily save your documents or email them to yourself.
COVID-19 Update: On June 8, 2020, the Supreme Court of Ohio released updated versions of some domestic relations forms that do not need to be signed by a notary. This is a temporary change, as in-person notary services can be difficult to access with COVID-19 shut-downs, and the updated forms let you skip that step. We have updated our forms to match the new forms, and will update our site when they are no longer usable.
