An Extensive Guide on Wyoming Divorce Papers
Are you planning to end your marriage in the Equality State? You will need to learn all about Wyoming divorce papers beforehand.
DoNotPay will provide you with the necessary information about the forms you’ll need and the process in general. We will also create a divorce settlement agreement—a crucial staple in any uncontested divorce!
Wyoming is a no-fault divorce state. This means that spouses don't have to have grounds for a divorce. It’s enough to state irreconcilable differences when filing for divorce. In Wyoming, a no-fault divorce can also be based on the incurable insanity of one of the spouses.
Depending on how much the spouses agree on important issues—such as alimony, division of property, and child custody—they can go for two types of a divorce process:
- A contested divorce—In cases when they can’t agree on most areas
- An uncontested divorce—When the couple is on the same page and wants to end the marriage in a friendly way
An uncontested divorce is a far better option because it’s faster, simpler, less stressful, and comes at a lower cost.
- The divorce petition
- Financial disclosures
- A child-support computation form (for spouses with children)
- The divorce decree
You will need some additional forms if you have children, in which case you will also have to file the child-support computation.
The type of forms also depends on whether you are the plaintiff (the spouse who files the paperwork) or the defendant (the spouse receiving the paperwork). If you are the plaintiff, you will need to be the one filing the divorce petition. The defendant generally needs to file a response to the petition.
Prior to filing for divorce in Wyoming, check whether you meet the state residency requirements. The Equality State requires you to have lived in the state for at least 60 days before filing your divorce papers. It can be enough if the spouse filing for divorce has been living in Wyoming since the day you got married.
You can see the rest of the process for filing for an uncontested divorce in the table below:
|Gathering and filing the divorce papers||If you don’t have all the forms or don’t fill them out properly, the court can end up dismissing your case|
|Making copies of the forms||You will need copies for yourself, your spouse, and the court|
|Filing the forms||You need to take the divorce papers to the district court in the Wyoming county where you or your spouse lives|
|Serving the papers to your spouse||In Wyoming, you don’t need to formally serve the divorce papers to the spouse. It is important that the initial paperwork includes the Acknowledgement and Acceptance of Service form signed by the defendant|
