Answer each of the following questions to determine if you and your spouse qualify to use Washington Dissolution Online. Answering “No” to any of the questions below does not mean you cannot obtain a Dissolution in Washington, but rather that your situation may not be appropriate for Washington Dissolution Online.
Is this an uncontested Dissolution? In other words, have you and your spouse reached an agreement on how to divide your property and any debts, and if applicable, agreed on all issues regarding any children of the marriage? :
"Uncontested Dissolution" means that you and your spouse are amenable to getting a Dissolution and that you have reached a mutual agreement on how to divide your property and any debts. It also means that, if you have children of your marriage, you and your spouse have an agreement on child custody, visitation and support. If you feel that your spouse will "contest" the Dissolution, meaning that you and your spouse are not in full agreement, you should select "No."
You may not qualify to use our Uncontested Dissolution Service
It appears from your responses that your spouse may not or cannot sign the Dissolution documents.
