Grounds For Divorce
If you and your spouse have differences that can't be resolved, you've met the requirements for a no-fault divorce on the grounds of irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.
Massachusetts Residency Requirements
If at least one spouse was living in Massachusetts when your marriage broke down, there is no minimum in-state residency requirement and you can file for divorce at any time. Otherwise, at least one spouse must live in Massachusetts for a year before filing.
Where to File
If you last lived together as a couple in a county where at least one spouse still lives, file in that county's probate court. However, if neither spouse still lives in that county, file in the county probate court where either spouse lives now.
Divorce Filing Fee
The probate court charges a one-time filing fee when you file for divorce, but if you can't afford it due to financial hardship, file a fee waiver request. Your DivorceWriter purchase includes free Massachusetts fee waiver papers.
If your paperwork isn't accepted, DivorceWriter offers a money-back guarantee.
