The Process

The process of divorce starts with a petition written by the lawyer of one of the spouses. In this legal document, the reason why the spouse wants a divorce and his or her request like finances and custody is stated. The petition is filed with the court and when it is served on petitioner’s spouse, he or she has to file opposing papers in a certain time. If he or she doesn’t answer the petition, it means that he/she agrees to its terms and the court may give the petitioner everything requested in the petition.



Divorcing couples can make a settlement agreement that resolves all their issues such as propety division, debt division,child custody, child plans, spousal support. This process is better than have a trial. The settlement is submitted to a judge who might honor the written agreement if the terms are fair.
