An Explanation of the Divorce Process From an Essex County Divorce Attorney — Divorce 101
The first step in the divorce process is to file a petition with the court and have it served on your spouse. It is important to have this step done accurately and completed by a sophisticated attorney because any errors in the petition could cause problems in the future.
Following the petition, the court may issue temporary orders to ensure that bills are paid and that the children involved are protected. This is also the time where mediation can take place. If mediation is successful, the longer trial process can be completely avoided. If mediation agreements cannot be reached, then the process of interviewing witnesses, obtaining experts and fighting for your rights in court is the next step.
