              All the forms are here for a complete Divorce

However this is for informational purposes only. Please do not try to file your own divorce, It is
easier to work a few extra hours and cheaper in the long run to just let me do it. These forms are only
for reference. Also some courts may accept an affidavit, others may require a hearing or proof by
deposition or interrogatory. The manual describes step by step how it is done. But, you are almost
always better off using a local attorney to do your divorce. You will need at least a VS 300 in
Kentucky and any local forms for the county you are going to file it in. You have to file a deposition,
affidavit or you will have to do a proof hearing to give the judge proof to make his decision on. Each
county is different but basically you always follow the same form and only change the names
addresses and other facts in the forms.
If the forms have run together in the printing please note that The Heading of Each Motion or
Order belongs on a new page.
The information and these forms should help you if you are preparing your own pro se divorce in
Kentucky. However since I am not preparing your divorce I cannot be responsible for how these
forms are filled out and what is done with them. Each person’s divorce is different and each
person has different needs. The forms are for your information only and they are designed for a
general uncontested divorce. You should use an attorney. If your spouse will not sign the divorce
you will need a summons and the forms for a default judgment. If your spouse cannot be found
you will need a motion and an affidavit for a warning order attorney to be appointed. You can get
the civil summons forms from the court. These forms are on our disc of forms if you want to
purchase it for 20 dollars.
The parties are fictional in the attached forms and have no relationship to anyone living, dead or
undead. You will therefore have to substitute your own names for the names of the persons in the
forms. The forms are not and cannot substitute for the advice of an attorney. You are far better
off with one. Your Petition, marriage settlement agreement, financial statement and entry of
appearance forms must be signed by a notary. The marriage settlement agreement in Jefferson
county must be signed at the courthouse. Always have your proper address on the petition and
make certain that the time limits have been observed. The time limits require that 60 days after
filing and service of process has gone by if you have children before you can finish the divorce
with a hearing or affidavit. In Kentucky your local forms including the VS 300 must be turned in
with your divorce and most counties require the financial statement as well at the time of filing the
petition. Local forms can be obtained from the court clerk. Each county may require different
local forms but all Kentucky requires the VS 300. If you can’t find the signature line on the vs
300 turn it sideways and you will find it. If your divorce is a contested divorce you will need an
attorney and other forms that are not a part of this. DO NOT ATTEMPT to represent yourself in a
contested divorce especially if your spouse has an attorney. If your divorce is contested you need
an attorney. Never attempt to do your own divorce if it is contested. Make certain that the forms
are clearly typed and have all of the information including your name address and telephone
number on it. Always submit 2 copies of everything to the Court one for them and one for your
records keeping a copy showing the stamped date and time you filed it. If you are doing your own
divorce you will find that it would have been cheaper to work some overtime.
