Divorce Information Videos

Welcome to Legal Aid of West Virginia’s Divorce Video Series.   Filling out divorce forms on your own can be confusing. People usually ask, “Which forms do I need to fill out?” Or “What does that question mean?”

To help people fill out the divorce forms, Legal Aid made videos that will give you:

  • basic information about divorce and
  • walk you through each page of the forms so you can file on your own.

If you have questions about whether your divorce can be filed in the State of West Virginia, read this article.  

You can find the divorce forms on the West Virginia Judiciary’s website.  Or you can get them from the Circuit Clerk’s office in your county.   More information about divorce can be found in our Divorce Toolkit
