How to File for Divorce in Puerto Rico

A do-it-yourself divorce is one of the most affordable marriage dissolution options in Puerto Rico. Spouses who resolved their differences regarding asset division and childcare to make their case uncontested prefer it over hiring an attorney. However, filing for divorce without a lawyer, many people do not know where to start and what pitfalls to be aware of. To get a divorce in Puerto Rico, you should take the following steps:

  • Make sure you have lived in Puerto Rico for at least a year to qualify for marriage dissolution there.
  • Check if your case is uncontested. It means that you and your spouse must have agreed on divorce-related matters and do not need an attorney’s help.
  • Collect and fill out the appropriate papers and file them with the court.
  • Serve the spouse. In Puerto Rico, you cannot serve on your own. You must ask a third party over 18 years to hand the paperwork to your ex or hire a process server. If you’re filing together, you might not need to go through the service process.
  • Wait until your hearing date is set and come to it together with your spouse.

DYI divorce is an option that helps to save money but definitely not your time. The biggest problem with such approach to marriage dissolution is that you may spend days collecting paperwork and face court rejection in the end if the documents are outdated or filled out incorrectly. In such cases, online services become a time and money-saving decision. You can get the same filled out forms and court-approval guarantees that you would with a lawyer, but for significantly smaller fee of only $139.
