A newly developed “Divorce Navigator” is available to the public through the judicial branch’s website to assist in simplifying the divorce process, officials said in a release.

This resource is part of an overall effort to make the family court process easier and less expensive for litigants, according to judicial spokeswoman Rhonda Stearley-Hebert.

The Divorce Navigator is designed to help parties decide which divorce process is best for them through a series of questions. Based on answers the parties provide, this online resource will direct them toward a divorce process that may best suit their situation, according to the release.

In addition, the judicial branch has streamlined information on its website’s family FAQ section, so that parties may easily find information regarding three areas: divorce, child custody and visitation; child custody and visitation for unmarried parents; and child support. The information was previously spread out among different webpages.

“We recognize that divorce and custody matters can be very stressful for the parties involved,” the Hon. Elizabeth A. Bozzuto, chief administrative judge for family matters said in the release. “So it is incumbent on the judicial branch to offer services that will help reduce that stress as much as possible.”
