About the Program
This program can be used by a married person who wants a divorce or a legal separation. It can also be used by a partner who wants to dissolve a civil union.
The interview will produce all of the documents that you need to file your action except the Department of Health form and the income and expense affidavit (813A) and a property and asset affidavit (813B).
Click on this link to get the Department of Health form. 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.
