What steps do I have to take to get a divorce?

To obtain a divorce, there are four mandatory steps that you must take before you become single again.

  • First, you must file the law suit which opens up your divorce case.
  • Second, you must serve the other person with the divorce papers.
  • Third, you must do your financial disclosures. This means that you must list all of your income and all of your expenses. You must also list all of your assets and all of your debts.
  • Fourth, you must get a judgment from the Court.

All of these steps need to be done carefully. Although they seem simple, simple mistakes can have costly ramifications years later.
