How do I get a divorce? Where do I come to file a divorce?
Most people find that the best way to get a divorce is to hire an attorney
to do it for them. Technically, a divorce is started when a legal pleading called "complaint for divorce" is filed with the Clerk of Courts, along with instructions for service and payment of the filing fee. A divorce is not granted until the plaintiff (the person who files the complaint) has attended all of the hearings required by the court, and prepared all the necessary papers. At a minimum the person asking for the divorce will have to appear at a hearing and give testimony under oath or affirmation, bring a witness who will also testify, and prepare and bring all the necessary paperwork to complete the case. Please refer to the following topics in Domestic Relations' "General Information". divorce, dissolution, service, filing fee, parenting affidavit, parent education seminar and the journal department.
