Additional Forms (if Applicable):

Make Copies of your Forms

Once you have filled out the appropriate forms, make at least two copies of each. One set will be filed with your court clerk's office, and one should be kept for your records. You will also need to bring a certified copy of your marriage certificate, which you can get from the city or town where you were married.

Bring your Completed Forms to your Court Clerk's Office and Pay the Fee

Proceed to your court clerk's office with the originals and copies of your forms. If everything is in order, the clerk will use the original forms and ask you to pay a fee to file.

If your spouse lives in another state or country, make sure to consult a lawyer before filing.
