Divorce/Family Law Forms
If you want to represent yourself in court in a divorce or family law case, you must use the appropriate forms from Chapter 17 of the Iowa Court Rules. These forms are available free of charge from the Iowa Judicial Branch. Links to forms for divorce without children, for divorce with children, and for child support modification are provided below.
Note: Divorce matters can be very complicated and you may need to contact an attorney to help you with all or some of the divorce process. If you do not understand how to use these forms, or whether you should use these forms, you should talk to an attorney.
There are Guides for Representing Yourself in an Iowa Divorce accompanying the forms. It is very important to read the Guide before using the forms.
Even if you and your spouse agree to the terms of your divorce, the court must still review and approve those terms.
