Where doI get forms regarding filing for a divorce?

I have no idea where to start. I’ve been married for 3 years. I am 22 years old and have 2 children with my husband.

Most states in this country have pre-printed forms that can be filled out online that are approved by each state's judicial council in many areas of the law and court proceedings in each state. Most likely your state has forms for a petition for dissolution and summons that can be accessed online. California has these forms for online access.

If Florida does not, you should go to the county law library and ask the librarian for assistance in finding these forms or a template so that you can file your desired petition for marital dissolution. Another option is to contact your county bar association to see if it has some program in effect to assist people needing help with forms and filling them out for a marital dissolution like you.

Good luck.
