Effective September 1, 2011, an uncontested divorce packet without minor or dependent children can be downloaded from This is the only website we are able to recommend and this packet has been put together and approved by the Supreme Court of Tennessee. Your packet clearly states that this must be completed when you bring it to the clerks office for filing, please understand the clerks are unable to help you fill the packet out or answer any legal questions.

Once you have completed your packet, bring it to the Clerk and Masters office and we will assign your case to a judge. At that time you will pay your filing fee of $229.50. We do accept debit cards, however there is a $2.50 service charge for their use.
