However, it is very advisable to use an attorney to at least draft the Original Petition for Divorce and the Final Divorce Decree to be filed the with Court, as well as to dicuss with the attorney the proper procedure for filing and "proving up" the divorce. Spare the $250 - $500 and make it as painless as possible, because otherwise it might be a nightmare of entangled paperwork, confusion, and pissed off court clerks.
