completely.  	You  wi	ll also need to sign the 	Decree of Divorce	 that is  contained  in the 	
Plaintiff’s  Packet  before  your  divorce  can  be  completed  if  you  agree  on  all  of  the 
issues.

OVERVIEW	 	
 	
People  who  appear  for  themselves  without  an  attorney  are  considered  to  be  “self	-	
represented” and are also known as “pro se” litigants.  This packet is often referred to  as 
the 	“pro se divorce packet	.”  These packets work best when parties are abl	e to agree and 	
become  more  difficult  when  there  are  children,  disagreements  about  property,  financial 
interests,  violence,  harassment  or  coercion.  Many  areas  of  family  law  are  very  
complicated,  and  some  courts  in  the  State  of  Wyoming  require  certain  thing	s  that  others 	
courts  do  not.    Therefore,  it  is  not  possible  to  include  all  legal  solutions  available  to 
people in a divorce action in a single packet.  	Again	, this packet will be most 	useful	 for 	
people involved in 	an 	uncontested divorce	 (i.e., you both agr	ee on all matters)	.  There 	
are other types of actions available, including temporary orders on child custody, support, 
alimony and restraining orders that are not included in this packet and might be easier to 
obtain with an attorney.  These forms have bee	n created to  benefit the majority of people 	
who  represent  themselves  while  also  understanding  that  people  with  complex  or 
emergency  circumstances  may  continue  to  find  themselves  better  served  by  getting  an 
attorney.  We hope you find this packet and the r	esources that it contains helpful.   	 	
 
 
 	 	
 
 	
 	 	
 
 	
 
 	
 
 
 
 	This  information  packet  is  intended  to  provide  general  information      to  obtain  a 
divorce. 	 	
 	There  is  no  guarantee  these  forms  are  still  accurate  and/or  current.    The 
information in this packet is not int	ended to replace an attorney.  	 	
 	If  you  represent  yourself,  YOU  PROCEED  AT  YOUR  OWN  RISK.    You  must 
decide which forms apply to your situation.  	 	
 	DO NOT USE all forms, as some forms may not apply.  	 	
 	Fill 	out	 the	 necessary forms completely and correctly.  	 	
 	
Print  or  type  all  of  the  documents.	 DO  NOT  SIGN  YOUR  NAME  WHERE 	
THE JUDGE OR CLERK SHOULD SIGN.	 	
 
 	
DOMESTIC/FAMILY VIOLENCE:	   	
If you or your children have been a victim of family (domestic) violence, it is recommended that you find 
an  attorney  to  help  you.      There  m	ay  be  assistance  available  even  if  you  cannot  afford  an  attorney.  	
Contact  the  Wyoming  Coalition  Against  Domestic  Violence  &  Sexual  Assault  (1	-307	-755	-0992),  Legal 	
Aid of Wyoming ( 1	-877	-432	-9955) or the Wyoming State Bar (1	-307	-632	-9061) www.wyomingbar.or	g.  	
If  you  have  concerns  about  confidential  information  such  as  addresses  and/or  social  security  numbers, 
please  consult  an  attorney  and  do  not  attempt  to  do  this  on  your  own.  You  should  also  know  that 
Protection  Orders  and  Stalking  Orders  are  available  fr	ee  of  charge  at  the  circuit  court  clerk’s  office.   	
Please  call  the  Wyoming  Coalition  Against  Domestic  Violence  &  Sexual  Assault  for  assistance  in 
obtaining domestic violence protection or stalking orders (1	-307	-755	-0992).   If you have ever obtained a 	
pro	tection order involving your spouse, you should include this information in the 	Complaint for Divorce	 	
or 	Counterclaim	 under the “Other Proceedings” section.

LAWS:    All  laws  and  rules  that  apply  to  attorneys  apply  to  you. 	 It  is  your 	
responsibility to properly prepare and file the necessary documents.  	The Judge wi	ll n	ot 	
sign orders 	that are incorrect or incomplete, nor will the Judge give you legal advice 	
or make corrections for you.	 	
 
You  should  read  Title  20  of  the  Wyoming  Statutes  (the  divorce  laws),  and  you 	
should  also  read  the  Wyoming  Rules  of  Civil  Procedure. 	 Most  of  the  District  Courts  in 	
the  State  of  Wyoming  have  a  courthouse  library  or  county  library  where  these  laws  and 
rules  can  be  read.    You  may  also  look  up  these  laws  and  rules  on  the  internet  at: 
www.courts	.state.wy.us	 and  clicking  on  “law  library	.”  Some  courts  have  special  forms 	
they  want  you  to  use  in  addition  to  the  forms  contained  in  this  packet.    Check  with  the 
clerk before you file your documents.	 	
 
Clerks May Not Help You Fill Out the Forms.  	Unless 	your county has a court 	
facilitator,	 employees  in  the  Clerk  of  District  Court’s  office  and  in  the  Judge’s  office 	
cannot he	lp you or give you legal advice.	   	
 
The  Judge  Cannot  Talk  to  You,  Answer  Your  Questions  or  Assist  You.   	Ex 	
parte	 communication is comm	unication with the Judge with only one party present.     If 	
you  have  something  you  need  to  tell  the  Judge,  you  must  ask  for  a 	hearing	 and  give 	
notice	 to  the  other  party  or  file  a  written  statement  in  the  Court  file  and  send  a  copy  of 	
the written statement	 to the other party.	 	
 
Situations  that  Need  an  Attorney.   	Federal  law  may  impact  the  division  of 	
retirement benefits, employer	-provided health insurance, or other benefits which arise out 	
of the employment of  either party	, and  your settlement  terms  may not 	be honored by the 	
employer or the plan administrator of the employee benefits plan if your divorce decree is 
not  properly  completed  or  if  a  “qualified  domestic  relations  order”  (QDRO)  is  required.  
In  addition,  in  the  division  of  retirement  benefits,  there	 may  be  tax  consequences  which 	
you  may  not  anticipate.    If  your  divorce  involves  issues  like  these,  see  an  attorney  to 
discuss tax consequences or the terms  of a QDRO, or, if dealing with  insurance issues, a 
“qualified medical child support order	.” 	
 
In add	ition to the above situations, you should consult an attorney if:	 	
 	You are a vic	tim of domestic/family violence	  	
 	The other party hires an attorney	 	
 	You or the other party are contemplating filing bankruptcy	 	
 	You  or  the  other  party  expect  to  receive  money  beca	use  of  a  personal 	
injury	 	
 	You or the other party own a business	 	
 	You or the other party have significant assets or debts	 	
 	You or the other party own real estate	 	
 
Truthfulness.   	It  is  absolutely  essential  that  you  be  completely  honest  and 	
accurate in completin	g all forms.  There are penalties for attempting to mislead the Court.

Overvie	w: Divorce (No Minor Children)

You  should  read  Wyoming  Rules  of  Civil  Procedure,  Rule  11 	(representations  to  the 	
court)	 and Wyoming Statute § 6	-5-301 (perjury).	 	
 
Unauthorized  Practice  of  Law  Notice.   	The  purpose  of 	this  packet  is  to  assist 	
those  persons  who  are  doing 	their  own	 divorce.    It  may  be  an  unauthorized  practice  of 	
law  for  a  person  who  is  not  a  licensed  attorney  to  assist  others  in  obtaining  a  divorce.  
Such practice could subject a guilty party to punishmen	t for contempt of court.	 	
 
You are reminded that if you choose to continue without an attorney, you are 	
expected to know what to do and how to do it.  	The Wyoming Supreme Court has said: 	
“A 	pro se	 litigant (one without an attorney) will be granted no greate	r right than any other 	
litigant  and  he  must  expect  and  receive…the  same  treatment  as  if  represented  by  an 
attorney…”   	In  other  words,  if  you  do  not  have  an  attorney  you  will  be  held  to  the 	
same standards as a person with an attorney.

FAMILY LAW INFORMATION	 AND INSTRUCTIONS	 	
 	
CONFIDENTIALITY:   	If  you  have  concerns  about  keeping  infor	mation  confidential, 	such  as 	
your  address  and/or  social  security  number,  please  consult  an  attorney.    You  should  also  know 
that  Domestic  Violence  Protection 	Orders  or  Stalking  Orders  are  available  free  of  charge  at  the 	
circuit  court  clerks’  offices.    You  may  request  assistance  in  obtaining  Domestic  Violence 
Protection  or  Stalking  Orders  from  your  local  domestic  violence  or  sexual  assault  program  or 
you may cal	l the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault 	(1-307	-755	-	
0992)	.  There are also private attorneys who may be willing to assist clients in these matters.   If 	
you  have  ever  obtained  a  Domestic  Violence  Protection  Order,  this  information	 should  be 	
indicated  in  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce	 or  the 	Counterclaim	.     A  Domestic  Violence  Protection 	
Order  generally will be in  effect  for up to  one (1)  year and	, any provision  included in  that order 	
(such as child custody and/or support) will end when 	the order expires. If any orders are entered 	
as part of your divorce, custody or paternity action, those orders trump conflicting pro	visions in a 	
domestic violence 	protection or stalking order.	 	
 
Read 	through the following information and instructions 	befor	e completing 	the forms.	 	
 
Information	:  	 	
 
A  divorce  action  starts  with  the  filing  of  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce	.    A 	Complaint  for 	
Divorce	 is  a  written  request  to  the  court  for  a  divorce.    The  person  who  originally  asks  for  this 	
legal  action  is  called  the 	Plaintiff	 and  remains  the 	Plaintiff  throughout  the  case.    The 	Plaintiff 	
will file the 	Complaint for Divorce	 with the 	Clerk of the District Court	, whose office is usually 	
located  in  the  county  courthouse  or  a  branch  of  the  county  courthouse.    A  case  number,  al	so 	
called  a 	civil  action  number	, is  assigned  and  an  official  court  file  is  opened.    Delivering  the 	
Complaint for Divorce	 to the Clerk’s office is called 	filing	 a case.  	 	
 	
 	
 
 
 	
 	
Once  a  case  has  been  filed,  a  copy  must  be  formally  given  to  (a/k/a 	served	 on) 	the 	
Defendant.    The  person  against  whom  the  original  legal  action  is  being  requested  is  called  the 
Defendant	,  and  he  or  she  is  expected  to  answer  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce	.    The 	Defendant 	
remains the 	Defendant throughout the case.  	Personal service	 of the 	Complaint for Divorce	 and 	
Summons 	on  the 	Defendant  by  a 	Sheriff	 is  required  for  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce	 unless  the 	
defendant  completes  an 	Acknowledgment  and  Acceptance  of  Service	 form.    Formal  service  is 	
required  for  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce	 so  the 	Cour	t has  proof  that  the 	Defendant	 actually 	
received the papers.  Other forms of service exist, but these are the easiest methods that meet the 
formal service requirement for a 	Complaint for Divorce	.   	
 
 
 	
Case Number	:  When you start a lawsuit by filing the paperwork with the Clerk of the District Court, a 	
case number will be assigned by the Clerk.  You must include that case nu	mber on all further paperwork 	
in the “	caption	.”  The caption is the top section of a pleading, motion, and complaint stating the name of 	
the Plaintiff, Defendant, the District Court the case is filed in and the case number.

Instructions	:  	 	
 
STEP 1. 	 	Answer	 or 	Answer and Counterc	laim.	   	
 
Two options exist 	– you may either 	Answer the 	Complaint for Divorce	 or file an 	Answer and 	
Counterclaim.	  Both options are explained below:	 	
 	 
OPTION A	. Answer  to  Complaint  for  Divorce	.   	 If  you  have  been  served  or  have 	
signed  an 	Acknowledgement  and	 Acceptance  of  Service 	form,  you  should  file  an 	Answer  to 	
Complaint  for  Divorce	 with  the  Clerk  of  District  Court  where  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce 	was 	
filed.    An 	Answer  to  Complaint  for  Divorce	 is  a  written  document  explaining  to  the  court 	
exactly which prov	isions you agree with and which provisions you deny. If you fail to answer, a 	
default judgment 	may	 be entered against you and your spouse may be entitled the relief he or she 	
asked for in the 	Complaint	 for Divorce	.  	
 	
You must fill in the caption.  DO NOT f	orget to include the case number.  This is located in the 	
caption of the 	Summons	 and/or 	Complaint for Divorce	. 	
  
 	i. 	Admit  or  Deny.	  To  answer  the  papers,  you  should  go  through  each  and  every 	
paragraph of the 	Complaint for Divorce	 and either “admit” or “de	ny” each paragraph.  If 	
you do not have sufficient information to either admit or deny a particular allegation, you 
must state that in your 	Answer to Complaint for Divorce	.  If you disagree with something 	
and you fail to “deny” it in your 	Answer to Complai	nt for Divorce	, the Judge can find that 	
you admitted it.	 	
 	
 	ii. 	Time  limit  to  answer.	  	You  have  only  a  limited  amount  of  time  to  file  an 	
Answer  to  Complaint  for  Divorce	.  Generally,  if  you  were  served  within  the  State  of 	
Wyoming,  you  will  have  20  days  to  fi	le  the 	Answer  to  Complaint  for  Divorce	.    If  you 	
were  served  outside  the  State  of  Wyoming,  you  generally  will  have  30  days  to  file  an 
Answer to Complaint for Divorce	.  If you do not file an 	Answer to Complaint for Divorce	 	
by  your  deadline,  then  your  spouse 	may  obtain  a 	Decree  of  Divorce	 giving  him/her 	
everything he/she requested in the 	Complaint for Divorce	. 	
 
 	iii.	 	Computation  of  Time  Limits	.   	In  computing  most  time  limits,  unless  otherwise 	
stated, the day the pleading is  served shall not  be  included. The la	st  day  of the period so 	
computed shall be included, unless it is a Saturday, a Sunday, or a legal holiday, or, when 
the  act  to  be  done  is  the  filing  of  a  paper,  a  day  on  which  weather  or  other  conditions 
have made the office of the clerk of the court inacc	essible, in which event the period runs 	
until  the  end  of  the  next  day  which  is  not  one  of  the  aforementioned  days.  When  the 
period  of  time  prescribed  or  allowed  is  less  than  11  days,  intermediate  Saturdays, 
Sundays,  and  legal  holidays  shall  be  excluded  in 	the  computation.  A  "legal  holiday" 	
includes any day officially recognized as a legal holiday in this state by designation of the 
legislature or appointment as a holiday by the governor.

NOTE:  If you have any question or concerns as to when  the deadline 	to file the 	Answer to 	
Complaint for Divorce 	is, you should consult an attorney.	 	
 	
iv. 	Certificate  of  Service	:   	Copies  of  all  documents  sent  to  or  filed  with  the  court 	
must  be  sent  to  the 	Plaintiff  before  the  judge  will  consider  them.    This  certificate  is 	
included at the end of each document that requires it.  	 	
 
v. 	Copies.	  Make  two  (2)  copies  of  the  document.   The  original  will  be  filed  by  the 	
Clerk  of  District  Court,  one  copy  is  for  the 	Plaintiff  and  the  other  copy  is  for  you  (the 	
Defendant).  You will need	 to repeat this step for all documents you file with the Clerk’s 	
office.  	 	
 
OR	 	
 	
OPTION 	B.	 	Answer	 and  Counterclaim  for  Divorce	.    If  you  want  the  Judge  to  grant 	
relief to you (for example, give you the divorce, award property to you, order your spouse to pay	 	
alimony,  take  your  previous  last  name  back,  etc.)  you  should  file  an 	Answer  and  Counterclaim 	
for  Divorce	.    An 	Answer  and  Counterclaim  for  Divorce 	responds  to  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce	 	
and  gives  you  an  opportunity  to  tell  the  court  what  you  want  to  happen 	with  the  divorce.    First, 	
you  will  go  through  each  and  every  paragraph  of  the 	Complaint  for  Divorce	 and  either  “admit” 	
or  “deny”  each  paragraph.    Second,  the 	Counterclaim  for  Divorce	 portion  of  the  document  asks 	
the Judge to give you what you want.  You mu	st fill out all of the information in the 	Answer and 	
Counterclaim for Divorce	 completely.	 	
 	
i 	Restoration of Wife’s previous name	:  The 	W	ife should state whether or not she 	
would  like  to  resume  her  prior  name  in  either  the 	Complaint	 for  Divorce	 if  she  is  th	e 	
Plaintiff, or a 	Counterclaim	 if she is the 	Defendant.  This is the 	W	ife’s choice ONLY; the 	
Husband cannot demand that his 	W	ife’s name be changed.	 	
 
ii.  	 	Follow 	Step A(ii)	 through 	Step A(v	) above.	 	
 
NOTE:  If you have any question or concerns as to when th	e deadline to file the 	Answer and 	
Counterclaim for Complaint for Divorce 	is, you should consult an attorney.	 	
 	
iii	. 	Plaintiff’s 	Reply  to	 Your	 Counterclaim.	  	The 	Plaintiff  must  reply  to  the	 	
Counterclaim	.   	If  you  file  a 	Counterclaim	,  the 	Plaintiff  will  have  2	0  days  to  “reply”  by  filing  a 	
Reply  to  Counterclaim	.    The 	Plaintiff  will  either  admit  or  deny  the  separate  allegations  in  your 	
Counterclaim.   	If  the 	Plaintiff  fails  to  reply  to  the 	Counterclaim	,  you  may  be  entitled  to  file 	
Default	 paperwork  seeking  the  rel	ief  you  request  in  your 	Counterclaim. 	The 	Default 	paperwork 	
is  contained  in  a  separate  packet  available  on  the  self	-help  website  or  from  the  Clerk  of  District 	
Court’s office.

Family Law Informa	tion	 and Instructions	 	
Revised 	October 2012	 	
Page 	4 of 	6 	
 
STEP 2.	 	Initial  Disclosures.	  	The  law  requires  certain  information  be  made 	
av	ailable at least thirty (30) days after the 	Defendant is served, including a schedule of financial 	
assets;  schedule  of  non	-financial  assets;  schedule  of  all  debts  owed  individually  or  jointly; 	
location(s)  of  safety  deposit  box(es);  employment  information; 	and 	information  regarding  other	 	
income and retirement accounts	.  	
 
EXCEPTON	:  	If  you and the 	Plaintiff agree on all issues in your divorce and you both are 	
signing the 	Decree of Divorce	, then you do NOT need to complete the 	Initial Disclosures 	and 	
you can 	move on to	 Step 3	. 	
 	
A.	 	WHEN  TO  SERVE	:    Initial  Disclosures  must  be  sent  to  the 	Plaintiff  (or  his/her 	
attorney) WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER 	YOU ARE	 SERVED.  	Be sure to keep a copy of 	
this document for your records.	 	
 
B.	 	DO  NOT  FILE  THE  INITIAL  DISCLOSURES  WITH  THE  CLERK	.  This 	
form is only given to the 	Plaintiff (or his/her attorney).	 	
 
STEP	 3. 	If  you  and  the 	Plaintiff  agree  on  all  of  the  terms  in  the 	Decree  of  Divorce	,  sign 	
both  documents in  front  of a 	Nota	rial  Officer	.   The 	Decree of  Divorce	 will need to be  filled out 	
co	mplete	ly, signed by you and the 	Plaintiff 	and both of 	your 	signatures 	need to be 	notarized.  	 	
 	When  will  your  divorce  become  final	?   	Your  divorce  will  not  be  final  until  the 	
judge  signs  the 	Decree  of  Divorce	 and  it  is  filed  with  the 	Clerk	 of 	Court	.    It  may 	take  several 	
days  for  the  judge  to  sign  the 	Decree  of  Divorce	.    You  must  verify  with  the 	Clerk	’s  office  that 	
the 	Decree  of  Divorce	 has  been  file	-stamped  before  you  can  be  sure  your  divorce  is  final.    The 	
time  limit  to  appeal  a  decree  begins  to  run  from  the	 day  the 	Decree  of  Divorce	 is  filed  with  the 	
Clerk	’s office.  	 	
 
STEP 	4. 	If you and the 	Plaintiff	 do NOT agree on all issues of your 	
divorce, 	you will need to have a trial	: 	
A.	 	Trial	.  If 	you and the 	Plaintiff cannot agree on all issues, 	your case will have to 	be 	
heard	 and decided by a J	udge at a trial.  	 	
 	Caution	:    It  is  strongly  recommended  that  you  hire  or  find  an  attorney  to 	
represent  you  at  trial,  though  you  may  represent  yourself.    You  proceed  at 
your own risk and will be expected to know the laws.	 	
B.	 	Request 	a trial date.	  If the 	Plaintiff has 	NOT	 done so, y	ou will need to request a 	
hearing by  completing  a 	Request  for Setting	.  Write in  “trial” where it asks the type of hearing.  	
Indicate  how  much  time  you  think  it  will  take  for  you  and  the  other  party  to  pres	ent  your 	
evidence and write that in (usually 	one (1) to 	three (3) hours).  You also need to decide whether 	
or  not  you  want  a 	Court	 reporter  to  record  the  proceeding.    If  you  request  a 	Court	 reporter,  you 	
will be responsible for paying the fees. SEE BELOW F	OR DETAILS ON GETTING A 	COURT	 	
REPORTER. 	If a hearing is not recorded by an official court reporter, a transcript of the hearing

Family Law Informa	tion	 and Instructions	 	
Revised 	October 2012	 	
Page 	5 of 	6 	
 
will not be available.	  It is very difficult to appeal the Judge’s decision if  you do not get a 	Court	 	
reporter to take down ever	ything that is said at the trial.  	 	
 	
 You  must  file  the 	Request  for  Setting	 and  the 	Order  Setting  Divorce  Trial  and 	
Requesting Pretrial Statements 	with the 	Clerk	’s office and someone there will fill in 	
the hearing date and time and mail  a copy to  you and th	e other party.  You will need 	
to provide an addressed, st	amped envelope for you and the 	Plaintiff	 to the 	Clerk	.   	
 
Once a trial date has been set, do the following:	 	
 	
C. 	Pretrial  Disclosures	. 	-  	Both  parties	 must  provide  to  other 	party	 AND 	
PROMPTLY FILE WIT	H THE 	COURT	 the 	Pretrial Disclosures	 regarding the evidence that it 	
may present at trial.	 If you have questions, you should contact an attorney.	 	
 	
 When  are  the 	Pretrial  Disclosures	 due?  Unless  otherwise  directed  by  the 	
Court	, these disclosures must be made 	at least 	30 days before trial	.   	
 	
 Take the original and two (2) copies to the 	Clerk	 for filing.  Keep one copy for 	
your records 	and send the other copy to the 	Plaintiff	 (or his/her attorney).	 	
 
 	Settlement  before  trial.	  In  the  event  that  your  case  settles  b	efore  the  trial,  you 	
must  present  the 	Court	 with  the  completed  and  signed 	Decree  of  Divorce	 in  writing  before  the 	
Court	 will  take  the  trial  off  of  the  schedule.  There  will  be  no  continuances  or  canceling  of  the 	
trial  date  based  on  telephone  calls.    If  you 	need  a  continuance,  you  should  contact  an  attorney 	
for assistance in seeking one. 	 	
 
 	Court	 reporter.	  If you wish to have a 	Court	 reporter you are required to	 provide 	
notice  to  the  official 	Court	 reporter  at  least	 three  (3	) working  days	 before  the  matte	r  is	 set  for 	
hearing.    The  three	-day  notice  requirement  will  not  be  waived  by  the 	Court	.    The  notice  is 	
required  for  all  civil  matters  including  jury  trials.    Payment  of  the	 statutory  reporting  fee  of 	
$45.00  per  day 	must  be  paid  to  the  official 	Court	 reporter 	prior  to  the  commencement  of  the 	
hearing/trial.  Checks for the statutory reporting fee shall be made payable to the Wyoming State 
Treasurer.	   	
 	
 	Evidence and witnesses.	  At the hearing,  you will need to  present  your evidence 	
and witnesses.  If the 	Order Se	tting Divorce Trial and Requesting Pretrial Statements	 is entered 	
(signed  by  the  J	udge),  you  must  follow  the  terms  and  provide  the 	Court	 with  the  information 	
requested in that document, including copies of exhibits you want to introduce at the trial and a 
list  of  your  proposed  witnesses  and  what  their  testimony  is  going  to  be  about  within  the  time 
frame ordered (usually 3 to 5 days prior to the trial).  Under the law, the Judge cannot help you 
or assist you at trial.  You are on your own without an attorney	. 	
 
 	Final  Decision  (	Decree  of  Divorce	).  Following  the  trial,  the  J	udge  will  make  a 	
decision  or  may  take  the  matter  under  advisement,  meaning  he  or  she  will  need  to  think  further

Family Law Informa	tion	 and Instructions	 	
Revised 	October 2012	 	
Page 	6 of 	6 	
 
before m	aking a determination.  If the J	udge instructs  you,  you must take that	 decision and type 	
it into the 	Decree of Divorce	 incorporating the J	udge’s decision.	 	
 	
 You  are  again  reminded  that,  if  you  choose  to continue  without  an  attorney, 
you  are  expected  to  know  what  to  do  and  how  to  do  it.    The  judge  will  not 
guide you through th	e trial/hearing, tell you how to proceed or advise you on 	
the law.	 	
 	When  will  your  divorce  become  final	?   	Your  divorce  will  not  be  final  until  the 	
judge  signs  the 	Decree  of  Divorce	 and  it  is  filed  with  the  Clerk  of  Court.    It  may  take  several 	
days  for  the  j	udge  to  sign  the 	Decree  of  Divorce	.    You  must  verify  with  the  Clerk’s  office  that 	
the 	Decree  of  Divorce	 has  been  file	-stamped  before  you  can  be  sure  your  divorce  is  final.    The 	
time  limit  to  appeal  a  decree  begins  to  run  from  the  day  the 	Decree  of  Divorce	 is  filed  with  the 	
Clerk’s office.

mailing the 	Order Setting Divorce Trial and Requiring Pretrial Statements 	to you	 and the 	
Plaintiff	).   	 	
c. 	File your 	Pretrial Disclosures	 30 days	 before the trial date.

ORDER SETTING DIVORCE TRIAL	 	
 	AND REQUIRING PRETRIAL STATEMENTS	 	
 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	
 	
THIS MATTER	 having come before the Court upon a 	Request for Setting	, and the Court 	
being generally advised 	in the premises; 	 	
IT  IS  HEREBY  ORDERED	 that  a  trial  of  the  above  matter  is  hereby  scheduled  for 	
Courtroom No. ____	 of 	 the ______________ County Courthouse, ______________, Wyoming on 	
the _____	 day of ________, 20___ commencing at __:____ o’clock __	.m	.   	
(___	_) minutes/hour(s)/day(s) has been set aside for the trial of this matter. 	 	
            	IT IS FURTHER ORDERED	 that each party shall file and serve on 	the 	opposing 	party or 	
their attorney, if represented	, no later than five 	(5) 	days prior to the trial	, the party’s sworn statement 	
setting forth the facts, to the best of the party’s knowledge and belief, called for by Section “A” of 
the attached list of information, and a statement by counsel	 (attorney)	, if any, of the client’s position 	
and proof as called 	for by Section “B.”  These filings are required to narrow and simplify the issues, 	
prevent  surprise and to eliminate unnecessary proof.  The material may be presented in narrative 
form but must be complete for purposes called for by this order.  To avoid d	uplication, the parties or 	
their attorneys, if any, may submit a joint statement of those items not in dispute.	 	
 	Any party requesting the reporting of a particular matter by the offic	ial court reporter 	
shall  make  a  request  by  phone  to  the  appropriate  offic	ial  court  reporter	 at  least  three  (3)	 	
working days	 before the matter is set for hearing.	  The clerk will be able to inform you which

court reporter to contact.  The three	-day notice requirement will not be waived by the Court.  	
The  notice  is  required  for  a	ll  civil  matters  including  jury  trials.    Payment  of  the  statutory 	
reporting  fee  of  $45.00  per  day  shall  be  paid  to  the  official  court  reporter  prior  to  the 
commencement  of  the  hearing/trial.    Checks  for  the  statutory  reporting  fee  shall  be  made 
payable to 	the Wyoming State Treasurer.  	 If a hearing is not recorded by an official court 	
reporter,  a  transcript  of  the  hearing  will  not  be  available.      It  is  very  difficult  to  appeal  a 
decision if you do not have a transcript of everything that is said at the tria	l.  Rule 904	 and 905 	
of the	 Uniform Rules of the District Courts of the State of Wyoming	. 	
 	In the event that this case settles, the parties are informed that there will be no change in the 	
scheduling of this matter by the Court until such time as the settl	ement is reduced to writing and a 	
written agreement is presented to the court.  There will be no continuances or canceling of the trial 
date based on telephone calls.
