DIVORCES- Contested and Uncontested
When going through a divorce, a common question is, "Do I need a lawyer?" The short answer is, probably. In West Virginia while one does not need an attorney to get divorced, if you have property, children, or retirement you should always consult with an attorney to understand your rights.
There are forms online at the West Virginia Supreme Court Website, Legal Aid, and in your County Clerk's Office that one can complete to file for divorce without an attorney.
Links to those forms can be found here:
