Can I file my own divorce, dissolution, or civil action?
Yes. However, individuals filing their own actions must follow the same procedures as attorneys. Pleadings must be typed on 8.5-by-11-inch paper and captioned "in the Court of Common Pleas of Fulton County, Ohio." All pleadings must have your name, address, and phone number on the cover page.


If you use internet forms you must be sure they are Ohio specific and contain all necessary information. Court staff and clerk of court staff may not give legal advice on how to prepare your documents. Please see court rules for additional information on filing documents.
