The Divorce Tracker
What is the Divorce Tracker? The Divorce Tracker is a free automated program that helps guide individuals through the divorce process in Pennsylvania and generates the forms necessary to pursue a simple, uncontested divorce action. This generally means that you and your spouse:
- both agree to a divorce or have been separated over 2 years,* and
- have no disputes over children, money or property.
*Legal Update: In Pennsylvania, for divorces based on separation, the period of separation for a marriage has been reduced to one (1) year for couples who separate after December 4, 2016. Divorces based on this new rule must be filed after December 4, 2017. The Divorce Tracker will be updated at that time.
What you must know before you begin: The Divorce Tracker guides a user through three (3) packets of questions and forms addressing the different stages of the divorce process. To use the Divorce Tracker, you must complete each packet in order, starting with Packet 1.
At the end of each packet, you must save your answers to the questions, so the information can be used in the next packet. In order to save your answers, you must register on the LawHelp Interactive website when you complete the first packet, Packet 1: Starting Your Divorce.
