How filing for a divorce works

How filing for a divorce works

There are many steps in the legal process when it comes to divorce law. Your attorney at the Law Office Of Antonio A. Gonzalez can explain every part of the process and protect your rights every step of the way. Here's how Divorce law typically works:

  • One spouse must begin the process by filing a complaint with the court.
  • The spouse filing, known as the plaintiff, must list the grounds for the divorce
  • The receiving spouse, known as the defendant, must respond to the complaint to be heard on any issues
  • The plaintiff must file a summons that the defendant is required to answer with an appearance or counterclaim
  • Both parties will attend a workshop and attempt to draft a settlement
  • If no settlement is reached, both parties will participate in additional programs including economic mediation, intensive settlement conference and ultimately a trial until every issue is settled.
The process is already long and confusing enough, but it becomes even messier if either party refuses to settle on terms. Make sure you have an experienced divorce attorney on your side to help you get through your divorce smoothly. Contact us today.
