Self-Help Divorce Forms

Divorce is a legal procedure that ends a marriage and changes the legal relationship between former spouses. Living apart from your husband or wife does not legally end a marriage.

If you want to file for divorce in Philadelphia County, forms that you will use for each step of the process are available from The Philadelphia Courts website. Here's how you access them:

  • Visit the Court of Common Pleas, Family Division - Domestic Relations webpage.
  • Scroll down and click on "Forms".
  • Click on "Divorce".

We recommend that you begin by reading the 2-page "Divorce in Philadelphia County" brochure before you download any forms.
