The person undergoing divorce should maintain many documents or divorce papers as a form of evidence in the future. If you are looking for divorce papers, then you can download the papers online for free. The divorce documents differ from state to state because the divorce laws differ from state to state. If you are seeking for divorce, then you must acquire divorce papers from U.S. State District and U.S. County. You can acquire most of the divorce papers from your Divorce attorney. But the state has not made it compulsory to acquire papers from your Divorce attorney or U.S. department. You can download papers online also. You should secure divorce papers that are specified by the state laws instead of acquiring papers from the county because the laws of county vary according to time.
The divorce documents should be obtained at every step of divorce. The person seeking for divorce first obtains 'Original Letter of Petition' from the counter clerk of the court. The 'letter of petition' consists of information about the parties involved in the divorce and the reason for divorce. The 'letter of petition' is known by different names in different states. In Alaska, it is known as the 'Petition for the dissolution of marriage'. In Alabama, the 'petition letter' is known as 'Complaint for Divorce'.
Then the person or the attorney, who is handling the divorce case, prepares an affidavit for purposes such as enquiry, notice of hearing, address confidentiality and other purposes. The person undergoing divorce should also file an application and a separate affidavit for child custody. The person undergoing divorce should also file the 'certificate of divorce dissolution'.
