"After I filled everything out, I was able to print my divorce papers (application) and bring it into the courthouse. When I got to the courthouse, they were able to go through and accept it all. I had no problems."

Not for ..

Our website does not address the following situations yet

Filing with Court

You have to print and take the paper work to the court. You still have to pay the court fees at the court which is about $315 (Feb, 2020) 

Responding to a divorce petition

In case your spouse has filed for divorce and served you, and now you need to respond, then LegalAtoms is not quite for you

Continuing an existing application

LegalAtoms is not designed to help you continue an existing case that you have filed. In case you have already filed for divorce and now need to finalize or just prepare a temporary order, then LegalAtoms will not be convenient
