Residency Requirements

In order to file a divorce in Ohio, you must have been a resident of the state for at least six months, and of your current county for at least 90 days.  If either of these do not apply, you are not permitted to file a divorce at this time.

Things to Think About

Divorces can be complicated and there can be a lot on the line.  It is always best to talk to a lawyer.  These forms are designed to help people who cannot afford a lawyer and have a low risk divorce.


Before continuing, ask yourself these four questions:

- Do you own any real estate, including your home?

- Do you have a 401(K), and IRA, or other retirement account, including PERS or VA benefits?

- Are you entitled to a pension when you retire?

- Do you think that you may be entitled to spousal support (aka alimony)?


If either you or your spouse would answer "yes" to any of the above, you should make every effort to hire an attorney.

Requesting Attorney Fees

If you have been married for a long time, and if your spouse has significantly more income than you do, it is possible that the Court may order your spouse to provide you with the funds to hire an attorney.  If you think this is an option that may apply to your situation, please call SEOLS at 800-686-3668 and tell the intake staff member that you are seeking assistance in filing a "Request for Attorneys Fees in a Divorce" so we can evaluate your case further.

More Things to Think About

 Divorces with children can be especially complicated.  These forms are designed for people that cannot afford a lawyer and who have simple cases where there won't be a custody fight.  Even in these cases, it is always best to talk to a lawyer.

If you have not done so already, we strongly urge you to contact your local office of Southeastern Ohio Legal Services® for a more detailed analysis of your situation.  If SEOLS is unable to offer you further assistance, we recommend that you contact a private attorney.

If you have consulted with SEOLS and at least two private attorneys, and have decided that you wish to pursue your case on your own, select your county to continue
