Are you from the US? You will have to use a lawyer... you can't just do it yourself. Reason being... the lawyer draws up the divorce agreement, and then you two agree on the terms, and sign. The lawyer then files it with the court in your state.... and the judge decrees it, and says when it will become final.
If it is an uncontested divorce, and there are no kids involved... then it's going to be very quick, and simple... and the attorney fees are minimal...
If she contests it,, or you two fight over property, money, or kids.. then it's more difficult, and you'll have to go to court.
But, even an uncontested divorce, usually requires an attorney, to draw up the papers, and file it legally...
If you do have kids, but have already agreed on the custody arrangements, and have no intention of fighting about that, then you will still have an uncontested divorce..
Sounds like you've both agreed to do this... so get a lawyer, draw up the agreement, sign it, and they'll file it for you...
