Wyoming is different from some other states. Here, one spouse must file for divorce even in uncontested cases. That is, one spouse (the “plaintiff”) must organize the preparation and signing of the paperwork and serve them to the other.
You cannot file the petition jointly. If you’re the “plaintiff”, you will need some (or all) of the following forms, depending on your circumstances:
- Complaint for Divorce (signed by the plaintiff)
- Civil Cover Sheet
- Vital Statistics Form
- Summons signed by the plaintiff
- Proof of Service of Spouse (sheriff’s return of service or acceptance of service)
- Confidential Statement of Parties for Child Support Order (if the parties have children)
- Confidential Financial Affidavit
- Affidavit of Divorce Without Appearance of Parties
- Decree of Divorce
- Order for Income Withholding
- Income Withholding for Support, and
- Decree of Divorce.
Check with your local court clerk to verify that the forms you submit cover the requirements for your county.
