STBX and I are filing for dissolution of marriage. This is different than a divorce in that both parties agree to end the marriage, no fault is assigned, no witnesses are required, and only a hearing is required instead of both a hearing and a trial. I'm going by the courthouse today to pick up the required forms and find out how much it costs to file. Our county has a worksheet to help figure out how much child support should be paid. We've already worked out our property, debts, and custody arrangements. We just have to put it all on paper. Does it sound like we need an attorney? We don't own a house or any major property other than our cars, which we've already split. I really can't afford to pay for an attorney. Would it be possible for us to do this on our own?
