NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Supreme Court is allowing certain court forms to be accepted in courts across the state in some divorce cases.

The high court on Wednesday approved eight plain language forms that can be used in uncontested divorces without minor or dependent children. The forms may be used beginning Sept. 1.

The high court said in a news release that the forms are part of ongoing efforts to improve access to justice.

Chief Justice Cornelia A. Clark said the forms are not intended to replace the need for an attorney but provide a helpful resource for attorneys and for Tennesseans who choose to file for a divorce on their own.
