Raynham, MA asked in Divorce and Family Law for Massachusetts

Q: Can I file a divorce completely online without having to go to court if my partner is in agreement with the divorce?

We have no children, property, assets or bank accounts together so I was wondering if we could file the paperwork electronically or by mail and skip the in person court process since we don’t have anything to split up between each other, thank you

A: You can e-file all the required documents with the court, then the court will typically schedule you for a Zoom hearing. The e-filing system isn't entirely intuitive, but if you are somewhat tech-savvy you will be able to figure it out. You can also mail the documents to the courthouse instead of going there in person if e-filing doesn't work for you.
