There's no way to save the marriage, and so you're going to divorce, but you've never been divorced before, your spouse has never been divorced before, no one in your family has been divorced before, so you want to know how to do it. Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question, How to apply for divorce? Well, first of all, the law regarding divorce is going to vary from state to state, but generally speaking, in all fifty states, you are going to have to seek divorce through the courts. The laws in your state are going to determine how this procedure works. In most states, there are self-help forms available, and if you go online to your state, you may be able to pull these forms off of the website. If not, you may be able to go to your local county courthouse, and see if there is a self-help packet. If you go through these forms and you don't understand them, and you need assistance, you may see if you qualify for legal aid, or you may seek the services of a family law attorney, to assist you, in completing these forms, but generally speaking, you're going to have to go through the court system in your state, to obtain a divorce. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
