About the Program
This interview can be used by a married person who wants to respond to a Complaint for divorce or a Complaint for legal separation. It can also be used by a partner responding to a Complaint to dissolve a civil union.
The interview will produce all of the documents that you need to file your action except the income and expense affidavit (813A) and a property and asset affidavit (813B). You can get a copy of a blank 813A form and an 813B form by going to the Vermont Judiciary website. You can also use CourtFormPrep programs to fill out forms 813A and 813B.
Before you begin, you will need the following information:
- Complaint filed by your spouse or partner
You will need to review the information provided by your spouse or partner in their Complaint as you use this program.
Note: You will be taken to our partner website called LawHelp Interactive.
If you have any questions about these forms, review the CourtFormPrep Frequently Asked Questions.
