You must agree on all important issues and file a written settlement agreement that details the agreements between the spouses. You must also meet certain residency requirements (living at least sixty days in Wyoming before filing, or if you were married in the state within the last 60 days, one spouse must have resided in the state since the wedding). Wyo. Stat. § 20-2-107 (2021). If you have children, you can use the Wyoming online child-support calculator to figure out child support based on the state’s guidelines.

Divorce mediation offers a number of advantages, including:
- lower cost,
- freedom to make informed decisions,
- control, and
You and your spouse control the outcome of divorce mediation, not the courts.
For divorce mediation to be successful, it’s important that both spouses engage in good faith. Mediation will likely not be successful if one spouse is more interested in harming the other spouse than resolving disputes over property or child custody arrangements. If both spouses engage in good faith, though, mediation can save significant time and money for both spouses.
