Delaware allows you to complete your divorce without an attorney if you and your spouse can come to an agreement on what to do with your property and how you will care for any children that you have.
Either you or your spouse must have lived in Delaware for 6 months before filing for divorce.
Grounds For Divorce
Delaware is a no-fault divorce state. In a Delaware no-fault divorce the spouses agree that "the marriage is irretrievably broken and that reconciliation is improbable."
