Divorce can carry complicated issues, especially when parties share children or a lot of property or assets. See Iowa Recent Changes to Family Law 2021 for more information. However, what happens if you do not want to hire an attorney? Is there an option to get a divorce without an attorney in Iowa? There is! It is called a “pro se” divorce.
