The decision to divorce is one of the most difficult you will ever make. It is entirely normal and natural for you to second-guess that decision all the way through the process. If your spouse is seeking a divorce that you don’t want, it is even more difficult.

A divorce is a lawsuit. As in other lawsuits, there is a petitioner (the person who files) and a respondent (the person who is typically served with divorce papers). The legal process of initiating and responding to a divorce suit requires the preparation and filing of divorce pleadings. It is critical that these pleadings are drafted correctly to ensure that you have the legal right to obtain the results you desire. Improperly drafted pleadings can result in the complete prevention of the obtainment of certain outcomes you may desire. In contested cases, there can be numerous pleadings prepared and filed by the parties. The divorce will resolve all matters relating to the children of the marriage.
