Can You Do A “DIY" Divorce In Minnesota?
Yes, everyone has a constitutional right to represent themselves in any matter before the court.
You can download the Divorce/Dissolution Forms and fill out all the forms yourselves and file them with your county. In fact, an estimated 70% of all litigants navigate the family court system without attorneys.
Many counties have established self help desks, where you can find help in filling out the forms and figuring out what is needed.
However, it can be a challenge. The court supplied forms are not user-friendly and are filled with warnings that you should really have an attorney help you file a Minnesota divorce.
