Divorce process

Getting a divorce in Washington state involves 3 main steps listed below. Each step in turn has several sub-steps which depend on your situation (e.g. with or without children) and the county where you are filing at. In order to see the detailed process, click on the "Begin Application" button and complete the first questionnaire.

The questions presented to you adjust based on your responses. Sections that do not apply to you are skipped.

JDivorce accurately creates the divorce application. I filed at King County and everything went fine. I liked that I could download the application in WORD format so I could easily make changes later.
