Getting the Forms & Instructions for Filing for Divorce/Legal Separation

You indicated in the last 2 questions that you and your spouse

  • have minor children together, a child may have been born to the wife during the marriage but is not the husband's, or that the wife is/may be pregnant and
  • that you will be filing Jointly. 

If either are not the case, please go back.

Do you believe you need a Temporary Hearing?

Parties may request a Temporary Hearing at any point in the process up until the date the divorce/legal separation is granted if you and your spouse DO NOT agree on such matters as:

  • maintenance (spousal support),
  • whether one of the parties should be ordered out of the home,
  • who should have the use (not ownership) of certain property (such as bank accounts and vehicles),
  • who should make various payments on debts (such as a mortgage payment),
  • or if there are minor children involved, and you cannot agree on child support, custody, and placement,
  • or other issues that you think need court orders before the Pre-Trial Conference.

We currently agree on all matters of the divorce.
