Massachusetts Divorce Details


There's no minimum in-state residency requirement if at least one spouse was living in Massachusetts when the marriage broke down.


If you and your spouse have differences that you can't resolve, you qualify for no-fault divorce.

Filing Your Massachusetts Divorce

The steps for filing your uncontested Massachusetts divorce are as follows:

  1. Review and sign the completed documents.
  2. File the Joint Petition for Divorce, Separation Agreement, and related documents with the Court Clerk.
  3. The judge signs the Judgment of Divorce finalizing your divorce.

Getting Your Divorce Finalized

In an uncontested divorce, the judge usually signs the Findings of Fact and Decree of Dissolution finalizing the divorce 60-days from the date the divorce was filed. Each spouse will receive a signed copy in the mail.

Where to find Blank State Forms

If you prefer to complete your forms on your own, you can download the divorce forms (with chilren) from the Maine Judicial Branch here and the divorce forms (without children) here.
