Will you do it on your own and try to figure out how to complete the forms and file them with the court in your jurisdiction?  Will you hire an attorney to duke out the terms between you and your spouse in court?  Will you hire a mediator who can help both you and your spouse to evaluate and make the decisions to be made in your divorce?
