do you need help finishing your Divorce (or Legal Separation or Nullity) Case?

For your convenience the Self-Help Center (SHC) can review your court file and email (preferred), mail or call you with your next steps to finish your divorce, legal separation, or nullity case. Fill out the Divorce Case Review Online Request Form below to ask the SHC to review your case.

Do I need to do anything before asking for a case review?

In addition to filing the forms to start your divorce case you also need to have filled out and served on your spouse your “Declaration of Disclosure” forms (these forms: Declaration of Disclosure (FL-140) , Income and Expense Declaration (FL-150) , and the Property Declaration (FL-160) ). The instructions, forms and sample packets are available on the Court’s website.

Where do I turn this case review request in?

  • Fill out the form below and it will be automatically sent to us.

What happens next?

After receiving your online request Self-Help Center staff will review your court file as quickly as we can. We will then email or call you (your choice) about your next steps.

What if I want to talk to someone at the Self-Help Center today about my divorce?

That is not a good idea unless you have other questions not related to finishing your case. We need time to review your file and cannot do it on the same day you visit our office. We recommend that you just fill out the form and let us email you or call you back.

What if I have a lawyer but want to finish the case myself?

Before the Self-Help Center can help you must officially remove your attorney from your case. To do this, you and the attorney must sign and file a form called a Substitution of Attorney (form MC-050)  or otherwise have them removed from your case. If you have not done this yet, please contact your attorney.

Thank you for your patience while we review your file. It can take up to 6 weeks for a review.
