According to the Barna Group, approximately 78 percent of adults in the United States have been married at least once. Additionally, 33 percent of adults 18 years of age and up have been divorced at least once. To counter the rising costs of divorce you can access forms via the Internet and print your divorce papers for free. Websites provide access to legal counsel and free divorce forms and guide you through the divorce process. Websites also answer questions regarding law and rights of the divorce petitioner. Parents with young children can also access information regarding children and separation.
