Divorce/Legal Separation

Starting your divorce or legal separation process can be overwhelming and confusing, but we are here to help. We recommend you follow-up with the Self-Help Center to review your paperwork. If you need help or have questions we are here M-F from 8:30-4:00 and can be reached at (530) 532-7015.

In partnership with the California Judicial Council and LawHelp Interactive, we are pleased to provide you with the links below to begin preparing your own legal documents online. We strongly recommend that you create an account to begin completing the paperwork so you do not lose the work that you have started.

  • Divorce Part 1- Starter Kit

    If you would like to start a Divorce or Legal Separation and open a case, you can begin by completing this interview.  If you are not ready to complete your financial disclosure forms, you can still start here. It will walk you through the forms to ask for initial custody and support. Have questions? We are here M-F from 8:30-4:00 to answer your questions (530) 532-7015.

  • Divorce Petitions and Disclosures

    This program allows you to complete all of the forms required for your Divorce/Legal Separation including the  FL-100 and associated attachments.  It also asks you for detailed information about the type of custody and visitation arrangements you would like to ask for. This program takes longer to complete than the Divorce – Starter Kit but will assure that your forms are more complete when you visit the Self-Help Center. It will require you to provide your current income and expenses, and the value and proposed division of your assets and debts.  Have questions?  We are here M-F from 8:30-4:00 to answer your questions.
