DIVORCE IN 3 STEPS

What are Financial Disclosures?

The first document filed with the court is the Petition, essentially a list of objectives and factual details. It identifies the type of case (divorce, separation, nullity), outlines important relationship facts (dates, children, property), and specifies desired outcomes (support, property division, custody orders).

Alongside the Petition, additional forms are filed, detailing property, children's histories, or specific requests based on case specifics.

 

After this stage is when requests for temporary orders—addressing support or custody—can be made; these orders remain in effect until the case reaches judgment.
