Self File for Divorce – Video Guide
The following videos were made from an online Divorce workshop for people who want to self-file for Dissolution of Marriage. The entire workshop is broken down into 5 informational videos, plus an introduction and a closing. Each video section comes with an accompanying packet that you can download from the right side of this page before you begin viewing. The videos will walk you through the forms in the downloadable packets. To find fillable family law forms referenced in these videos, visit the court’s website page. * Some forms included in the video have been updated since this page was first posted. The court periodically makes new versions of the filing forms. If you notice a difference between a form shown or mentioned in the video and the form linked, it is because it has been updated.
If you still need assistance after watching the videos, you may email us at [email protected]org with inquiries.
Thank you to Choung Mi Akehurst of the Fifth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida for making these videos for Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida and our clients!
