File Your Divorce Documents with the Family Law Clerk

Sign all of your divorce documents (ex – Fl 100, Fl 105, and FL 110) and make two copies of the signed originals. Submit the original document and two copies to the family law clerk’s office (you may mail in the documents along with the required filing fee at your convenience as well). If there are no errors on your forms, the court will accept the documents. You will be required to pay the court filing fee ($435) or obtain a fee waiver. View the Statewide Civil Fee Schedule to determine your filling fee.

Serve a copy of the filed court papers on your spouse.
