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

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

  • DO NOT have minor children together and that the wife IS NOT pregnant and
  • That you will be filing Separately because your spouse will not agree to sign the forms for divorce.

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.
